HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - The family of late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno and others suing the NCAA say a judge shouldn't throw out their claims against college sports' governing body.
The document filed Friday elaborated on ways they say the NCAA has harmed them, including making it difficult for Paterno's son to find a coaching job and hurting sales of Paterno memorabilia.
The say the market for memorabilia like footballs signed by the formerly winningest coach in Division I football is diminished by what they term ``disparaging and baseless statements'' by the NCAA.
The NCAA's top lawyer says after reading the new filing that he still thinks the case should be thrown out.
The plaintiffs are Paterno's family, some Penn State faculty and trustees, and some former players and coaches.
