Governor sues NCAA over Penn State sanctions

(HARRISBURG PATRIOT-NEWS) As a career prosecutor, Gov. Tom Corbett is going to force the NCAA to play on his home field and by his rules, which might prove to be an expensive stretch for the controversial sports organization.

Wednesday morning in State College, Corbett will announce the filing of a federal lawsuit against the NCAA over its sanctions against Penn State University in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

It’s likely to be an antitrust suit. Editor’s note: The Associated Press confirmed Tuesday night that it would be an antitrust suit. A person associated with the university and knowledgeable about the matter spoke with AP on the condition of anonymity because the lawsuit had not been filed.
