Dauphin County Judge Todd Hoover issued a 53-page ruling Wednesday saying the criminal case against former three Penn State administrators can proceed, and allowed testimony from former university counsel Cynthia Baldwin.

Former President Graham Spanier and administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz are accused of lying to investigators about what they knew regarding Jerry Sandusky’s abuse of boys.

Hoover declined to dismiss charges against the men.

He determined Baldwin represented each of them as agents of the university. Therefore, he says, they were not denied legal representation.

He also found there was no violation of attorney-client privilege.

Further, he determined there was no prosecutorial misconduct that violated their rights.

Lawyers for the three men argued Baldwin represented the university and not them when they testified before the grand jury investigating the Sandusky case.

No trial date has been set.
