(Harrisburg) -- Governor Corbett says he's disappointed a federal judge has thrown out his lawsuit against the NCAA.
He challenged the penalties against Penn State for its handling of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case.
Corbett has issued a statement, saying he feels strongly the claims he raised were compelling and deserved a thorough review by the courts.
He says people and businesses in Pennsylvania are suffering because of the sanctions the school agreed to nearly a year ago.
The judge's order dismissing the lawsuit in its early stages calls the litigation a "Hail Mary pass."
The NCAA penalties include a $60 million fine, a four-year bowl ban and a loss of football scholarships.
Corbett didn't indicate if he plans to appeal the decision. His office hasn't disclosed the lawsuit's cost.
