Penn State wants a judge to put former assistant football coach Mike McQueary’s lawsuit against the university on hold.
University lawyers filed a motion Monday in Centre County court. They are asking that the defamation and whistleblower lawsuit not move forward while criminal charges are pending against two school administrators.
The school argues it wouldn’t be fair to have the case proceed until the criminal charges are resolved against athletic director Tim Curley, now on leave, and retired vice president Gary Schultz.
Their trial is set for January on charges they didn’t properly report suspected child abuse by Jerry Sandusky and lied to the grand jury that investigated him.
