Penn State Wants McQueary Trial to be on Hold


By Anne Danahy — adanahy@centredaily.com

 Penn State is asking the court to put on hold the lawsuit former coach Mike McQueary filed against the university while the criminal trial of two former administrators is under way.

In a motion filed Monday, Penn State argues that the university “would be severely prejudiced” if the suit were allowed to move forward while the criminal proceedings against former athletic director Tim Curley and retired senior vice president Gary Schultz are still going on. Penn State’s motion notes that the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas has put several civil suits against Penn State on hold for that reason.

Curley and Schultz are facing charges of perjury for testimony they gave to the grand jury investigating Jerry Sandusky and failure to report child abuse. They are scheduled to stand trial in January in Dauphin County Court

  1. So the University is saying they don’t want any decisions made or actions taken until all the facts come out? What an interesting concept.

    • Heaven forbid, that they might make a snap judgement based on nothing. After all, who started this whole mess in a Wednesday night massacre which created riots and then an investigation that was frought with errors and no facts which then caused the NCAA to punish us with incredible penalties!! Oh, no, no actions until the facts come out–WHAT?
