Penn State Asks for a Delay in McQueary Lawsuit
Attorneys for Penn State filed a Motion to Stay earlier today, asking for the judge to delay the Mike McQueary lawsuit until after the Curley/Schultz trial has concluded. That trial is scheduled to begin on January 7th, with McQueary likely acting as the key witness.
The motion states that “Penn State will be prejudiced if the civil action moves forward while parallel criminal proceedings are active.”
McQueary is currently suing Penn State for $4 million on the grounds of defamation and misrepresentation. He has claimed that he was wrongfully terminated and is unable to find work because of “public scorn and vilification.”
