Lawsuit on Hold

A judge has granted former Penn State President Graham Spanier’s request to put on hold his defamation civil lawsuit against former FBI director, Louis Freeh.  The judge issued the stay, citing the criminal charges that Spanier faces for an alleged cover-up of complaints about Jerry Sandusky.  If Spanier were to testify in his civil case, his testimony could be used against him in the criminal case.  Freeh was in charge of a report on the Sandusky matter for Penn State that was highly critical of Spanier, former head coach Joe Paterno and former administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz.
