Corman v. NCAA Trial Delayed Until February

The Consent Decree will remain legally valid for at least another month after Judge Anne Covey’s ruling to delay the trial in the Corman v. NCAA lawsuit until February 17.

The trial was originally scheduled for January 6, but Covey granted Senator Jake Corman and Treasurer Roc McCord’s motion to review more documents related to the case in camera (legal jargon for “in private”). The NCAA asked Covey to deny their motion earlier this week, claiming that the 163 documents in question were privileged and the plaintiffs were trying to “clog” the court’s process. To that, Corman and McCord’s attorneys fired back with a motion reminding that Covey has already reprimanded the NCAA for its “frivolous” motions in this case.

This isn’t the first time Covey has denied privilege to NCAA documents. The court is currently reviewing 304 documents that the NCAA also fought to keep protected.

Originally started as a lawsuit over the Endowment Act to keep Penn State’s $60 million fine in Pennsylvania, Corman’s lawyers have since called into question the validity of the consent decree that agreed to the fine. In April, Covey slammed the consent decree, and has ruled very favorably for the plaintiffs throughout this lawsuit’s pretrial motions.

Covey also ruled that a pretrial conference will be held in Harrisburg on February 3 for the case’s attorneys.
