HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A federal judge in Pennsylvania says there's no legal basis for Gov. Tom Corbett's lawsuit against the NCAA over sanctions against Penn State related to Jerry Sandusky.
U.S. Middle District Judge Yvette Kane on Thursday threw out the anti-trust lawsuit Corbett filed in January in which he sought to overturn the $60 million fine, four-year bowl ban and other penalties.
Kane calls Corbett's argument ``a Hail Mary pass'' and is ending the case in its early stages.
Penn State, which agreed to the penalties, isn't a party to the case.
A spokesman for Corbett's general counsel's office and the NCAA offered no immediate comment.
Sandusky, a former university assistant football coach, is serving a decades-long prison sentence for child molestation.
