STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - The NCAA is asking a Pennsylvania court to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the family of the late coach Joe Paterno that seeks to overturn the sanctions against Penn State for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
Some trustees, former players and coaches and current faculty members are also taking part in the same lawsuit.
But college sports' governing body said the civil suit must be dismissed in part because the university itself isn't part of the suit. The sanctions handed down in July 2012 were agreed to by the NCAA and the university president.
The NCAA also firmly denied a claim that it had conspired with former FBI director Louis Freeh's team in formulating the sanctions. Freeh led the school's internal investigation into the scandal.
