Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett plans to sue the NCAA for the penalties it imposed on Penn State following the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Corbett scheduled a press conference Wednesday at Penn State to announce the antitrust filing in U.S. District Court in Harrisburg, Pa.
The school was fined $60 million (with the money targeted for child-abuse prevention grants) and the football team faces a four-year ban from bowl games along with reduced scholarships and the forfeiture of 112 wins.
Corbett, a Republican, was the state's Attorney General when his office took over the Sandusky case in 2009, but the former Penn State assistant coach was not charged until almost three years later.
