(Harrisburg) -- Penn State is asking the NCAA and state officials to settle litigation over who will control the $60 million it must pay for child abuse prevention as part of a consent agreement it entered into nearly a year ago.

Penn State attorney Frank Guadagnino wrote to other attorneys, today, saying the school had no desire to get involved in pending state and federal court battles.

His four-page letter, says university intends to hold the first $12 million installment until the NCAA asks for it.

He's offering to meet with the parties if they think the university can help settle the matters.

The NCAA is pursuing a federal court challenge to a new state law that requires the money stay in Pennsylvania.
