(Harrisburg) -- The criminal case against three former Penn State administrators accused of covering up complaints about Jerry Sandusky is heading to a state appellate courtroom next month.

Pennsylvania Superior Court has scheduled arguments in the case of Graham Spanier, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz for Aug. 11 in Harrisburg.

The three are appealing a county judge's decision earlier this year that could clear the way for them to go to trial.

Superior Court has sealed the case file.

Online court records indicate they're appealing a January order by Dauphin County Judge Todd Hoover that rejected arguments they had made about the fairness and legality of the grand jury investigation that resulted in charges. 

Sandusky is a former Penn State assistant football coach who's now in prison on child sexual abuse convictions.
