HARRISBURG, Pa. — Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett said he plans to sue the NCAA in federal court over sanctions imposed against Penn State in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal.
The Republican governor scheduled a news conference for Wednesday on Penn State’s campus in State College to announce the filing in U.S. District Court in Harrisburg.
The sanctions were agreed to by the university in July. They included a $60 million fine that would be used nationally to finance child abuse prevention grants.
