Paterno vs. NCAA Hearing Date Set for Oct. 29

The Paterno and friends lawsuit against the NCAA will see the inside of a courtroom for the first time on October 29 for a pretrial hearing the court announced today. The proceedings are scheduled to get underway at 10 a.m. at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte.

The 40-page lawsuit filed earlier this year aims to throw out the NCAA sanctions against Penn State and accuses NCAA President Mark Emmert of coercion. It charges Emmert and former NCAA Executive Committee Chairman Ed Ray with six different counts ranging from civil conspiracy to commercial disparagement.

In July, the NCAA filed to dismiss the lawsuit, saying a majority of the parties lacked standing.

The short filing today can be viewed here.
