Court Rules NCAA Must Turn Over 477 Documents

Commonwealth Court Judge Anne Covey ruled Friday that NCAA must provide 477 previously withheld documents and emails for review in response to the their claim for privilege in state Sen. Jake Corman’s ongoing lawsuit in the next 7 days.

Corman and McCord originally called into question more than 2,000 emails and documents related to NCAA’s sanction of Penn State, namely the $60 million fine levied on the university in their case to keep the fine money in the state of Pennsylvania through a state endowment. On Oct. 31, the parties of the lawsuit were at an “impasse” over 544 documents, which was reduced to 477 over the weekend by Corman.

Covey’s memorandum calls for an “in camera” review of the documents by the court, meaning the public or press will not be allowed to view the documents. The court will inspect the remaining disputed documents in order to determine if NCAA has privilege calling the review “necessary and appropriate.” Complete documents containing the Privilege Log must be delivered by noon on Nov. 14 via flash drive. The file must include a list of the name and job title of each individual in complete email chains.

This comes after emails regarding NCAA’s decision to sanction Penn State surfaced Wednesday from a previous request from Corman and McCord. In the emails, NCAA employees questioned their authority in sanctioning Penn State and hoped that the university would not call their “bluff” when the sanctions were presented.

The full memorandum can be seen below:
