Dismissal of the Against NCAA will not be Appealed
July 9, 2013
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Gov. Tom Corbett's general counsel
says the administration will not appeal a federal judge's dismissal of a
lawsuit against the NCAA over sanctions against Penn State relating to the
Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
The judge last month
rejected the antitrust lawsuit seeking to overturn a $60 million fine, a
four-year bowl ban, scholarship limits and other penalties.General counsel James Schultz said that the administration
would not appeal and that the ruling could indicate an openness to other
complaints about the sanctions.
The NCAA is opposing
a new Pennsylvania law requiring the $60 million fine to be spent within the
commonwealth. General Council James Schultz
says officials will continue to defend that provision.
