HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Lawyers for the NCAA and Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett are being summoned to a federal courtroom in Harrisburg next month to argue about a motion seeking to dismiss Corbett's anti-trust lawsuit against college sports' governing body.
U.S. District Judge Yvette Kane on Tuesday scheduled oral argument for May 1, nearly four months after the Republican governor filed a lawsuit over the NCAA's penalties against Penn State.
The NCAA argues its consent decree with Penn State, generated by the school's handling of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal, doesn't violate federal anti-trust law and actually improves competition in college sports.
Penn State isn't a party to the lawsuit, which accuses the NCAA of exploiting the Sandusky case to increase the power of the organization's president and help some universities gain a competitive advantage.
