 HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Gov. Tom Corbett is asking a federal court to dismiss an NCAA lawsuit aimed at overturning a Pennsylvania law that calls for keeping $60 million in Penn State fine money for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal in the state.
State treasurer Rob McCord filed a similar motion Thursday in federal court. McCord and Corbett are listed as defendants in the lawsuit.
In both cases, Corbett and McCord have asked the federal court to refrain from considering the NCAA's challenge because of two related pending lawsuits.
Corbett has filed a federal antitrust lawsuit against the NCAA to get the sanctions including the $60 million fine overturned. Pennsylvania state Sen. Jake Corman has also sued the NCAA over its use of the fine.
