(Harrisburg)_Penn State's trustees will meet by phone later this week to discuss the status of a lawsuit by state officials against the NCAA over the use of a $60 million fine the university is paying because of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.
A board spokesman said Monday it will conduct a public conference call at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday after a closed-door executive session.
State Sen. Jake Corman, who sued with Treasurer Rob McCord in an effort to keep the money within Pennsylvania, says there have been discussions but a settlement isn't imminent. The NCAA declined comment.
In April, Commonwealth Court added Penn State as a defendant in the lawsuit and said it needed more information about whether the consent decree that authorized the fine was enacted legally.
