PSU Wants McQuery Lawsuit Tossed

Penn State's lawyers have asked a judge to throw out a whistleblower and defamation lawsuit filed by the former assistant coach who says he saw Jerry Sandusky molest a boy in a school shower.

In court papers filed today, the university says Mike McQueary’s lawsuit is too vague and does not meet the legal standards to support his claims.

McQuery is claiming that then-university president Graham Spanier made him a scapegoat after Sandusky was arrested. But Penn State attorney Nancy Conrad wrote, "It is not enough that the alleged victim of a statement be embarrassed or annoyed, he must have suffered the kind of harm which has grievously fractured his standing in the community of a respectable society.”
