(Harrisburg) -- One of the former Penn State administrators accused of covering up abuse complaints against Jerry Sandusky wants a judge to unseal court records.

Former university vice president Gary Schultz filed a motion yesterday with Judge Barry Feudale, who recently ruled the case against him and two others can move forward.

Schultz argues he needs copies of a previous motion to throw out the grand jury report and other related documents, in part so he can prepare appeals.

He's also seeking transcripts and court orders.

The next step in his criminal case isn't clear.

Schultz, former president Graham Spanier and former athletic director Tim Curley are awaiting a preliminary hearing.

Sandusky, who was an assistant coach under Joe Paterno for decades, is serving a lengthy prison sentence for child sexual abuse.
