Penn State: Court should dismiss Spanier’s lawsuit
Penn State is asking a judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed against
the university by its former president.
Graham Spanier (SPAN’-yer) sued May 25 to obtain old emails that
he says are necessary to respond to Penn State’s child sex-abuse
According to the Centre Daily Times (http://bit.ly/K6lMYl), the
university contends it can’t disclose the messages because of an
ongoing investigation by the state attorney general.
Documents filed by Penn State on Thursday in Centre County court
also argue that Spanier should have first requested the emails
under the state’s Right-to-Know law.
Penn State is conducting an internal investigation of how the
university handled child molestation allegations against former
assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. Sandusky is currently on
trial and has denied wrongdoing.
