BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - The NCAA is facing another attack in court after several former Penn State players joined the family of the late coach Joe Paterno in a lawsuit seeking to overturn the landmark sanctions against the school for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
The lawsuit filed Thursday in Centre County sought to show that the NCAA and its top leadership overstepped the organization's own rules in levying the four-year bowl ban, steep scholarship cuts and other penalties against the football program.
Paterno family representatives also hope the case will raise new questions about the university's internal investigation led by former FBI director Louis Freeh, along with how and why the NCAA used Freeh's report as a basis for its sanctions in July.
Several trustees and faculty members also are part of the suit.
