Ncaa Sues Pennsylvania

02.21.13 |

The NCAA wasted no time in challenging a new Pennsylvania law designed to keep the $60 million Penn State fine over the Jerry Sandusky scandal in the state. The NCAA filed a federal challenge to the legislation just hours after Gov. Tom Corbett signed it into law Wednesday. State and congressional lawmakers have objected to use of the NCAA fine to finance child abuse prevention efforts in other states. The complaint asks a federal judge to throw it out, saying the Act violates provisions of the U.S. Constitution. It also asks for an injunction to prevent the law from being enforced.
