HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A lawsuit by Joe Paterno's family and others against the NCAA is heading to court, a day after Penn State announced settlements with 26 young men over claims of abuse by Jerry Sandusky.
Judge John Leete scheduled the Tuesday morning court session in Bellefonte to hear lawyers argue over whether the breach of contract, defamation and commercial disparagement claim should be thrown out.
Penn State said Monday it was paying 26 young men nearly $60 million over claims of child sexual abuse at the hands of Sandusky, the school's former longtime defensive coach.
The school says 23 deals are fully signed and three are agreements in principal. There are six other claims, and it believes some of them are meritless.
