HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - For months, the criminal case against three former Penn State administrators accused of covering up abuse complaints about Jerry Sandusky has been in limbo while a judge considered their request to have the case thrown out.
Judge Barry Feudale's ruling against Graham Spanier, Gary Schultz and Tim Curley could clear the way for a district judge to finally conduct the preliminary hearing that had once been scheduled for last December.
But Feudale's 16-page opinion and order anticipates that the defendants might want to take up the same issues he rejected before a county judge or a state appeals court. Lawyers in the case declined comment or didn't return messages.
Feudale's ruling says he doesn't have jurisdiction and denies their motion to throw out the grand jury report backing up the accusations.
