(Harrisburg) -- Litigation over the NCAA sanctions against Penn State will continue even though a federal judge has thrown out Governor Corbett's anti-trust lawsuit.

State Sen. Jake Corman, who sponsored a law signed in February that requires PSU's $60 million NCAA fine to be spent exclusively in Pennsylvania, is pursuing a Commonwealth Court lawsuit against the association over the use of the money.

Meanwhile, an NCAA challenge of the law is still pending in federal court.

Corman, a Republican whose district includes Penn State's main campus in State College, said Thursday that he does not anticipate any additional state action involving the sanctions.
