Cadre of Trustees Sue Penn State Over Documents

April 21, 2015

A group of trustees elected by alumni to Pennsylvania State University's governing board sued the university -- and the board -- to try to seek access to documents related to the 2012 investigation into sexual abuse by a former football coach, the Centre Daily Times reported. The cadre of trustees say they need access to some of the documents the university produced in response to Louis Freeh's inquiry into Jerry Sandusky's behavior -- documents that are protected by a confidentiality agreement -- to do their job as stewards and help develop a strategic plan. But their lawsuit follows an attempt by several of the same trustees to get access to those documents so they could do their own, competing review into the Sandusky matter.
