Both sides presented arguments related to a civil lawsuit Monday morning pitting former Penn State assistant football coach Mike McQueary against Penn State. He’s seeking millions in damages because he says he was improperly treated after reporting seeing another former coach, Jerry Sandusky, molest a young boy in the showers in 2001. Penn State is asking the judge to throw out the lawsuit. McQueary was not present at Monday’s hearing in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania. The hearing was over before noon.
Attorneys for Penn State argue there is no defamation because McQueary was a public figure as a coach. The judge expects to have a decision by late April.
