(Bellefonte) -- Seven members of Penn State's board are asking a Centre County judge for access to documents used by the team of former FBI director Louis Freeh that produced a report about how university leaders handled complaints about Jerry Sandusky.

The alumni-elected trustees has filed a petition aimed at forcing the school to let them see everything the Freeh team reviewed, gathered and produced in connection with the 2012 report.

The seven trustees say the material affects the school's finances, operations and what they called its "very culture.''

Penn State's president and board chairman have said the alumni trustees have declined confidentiality measures offered as a compromise.

The alumni trustees say the compromise would give them access to some of the source material, but not all of it.
