HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Lawyers for Penn State and a key witness in Jerry Sandusky's criminal trial are heading to court over the university's request to put the man's lawsuit on hold.
The hearing before Judge Thomas Gavin in Bellefonte on Friday pertains to Mike McQueary's whistleblower and defamation lawsuit against the school that once employed him.
Penn State wants the case to be delayed until after January, when two former university administrators are scheduled for trial on charges of perjury and failure to properly report suspected child abuse.
McQueary testified this summer he saw Sandusky attack a boy inside athletic department showers in early 2001. He and Sandusky served together on the football coaching staff.
Sandusky is in state prison for 45 counts of sexual abuse involving 10 boys. He maintains his innocence.
