Hearing set for McQueary’s lawsuit
BELLEFONTE, Pa. – A judge has scheduled a hearing in former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach Mike McQueary’s lawsuit against the school. Court papers filed Friday indicate the March 18 hearing will be short. PennState sought to have the lawsuit dismissed or put on hold while criminal charges are pending against two school administrators, but Judge Thomas Galvin earlier denied the request for a delay. McQueary is seeking millions of dollars in damages in a defamation and whistle-blower lawsuit against Penn State in connection with a child sex-abuse scandal involving former coach Jerry Sandusky. McQueary’s testimony helped convict Sandusky of child molestation.
