HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A federal judge in Pennsylvania says she’ll decide in the next couple weeks whether to dismiss Gov. Tom Corbett’s antitrust lawsuit against the NCAA over penalties against Penn State.
U.S. Judge Yvette Kane had pointed questions for both sides during a nearly two-hour hearing Monday.
Corbett says the NCAA went too far in getting Penn State to agree last summer to a $60 million fine, a multiyear ban on postseason football play and a temporary reduction in scholarships.
The university agreed to the sanctions over its handling of the child molestation scandal involving former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. Penn State isn’t a party to the lawsuit.
Sandusky is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence after being convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse.
