Freeh's report, the lawyers said, contained "grievous and potentially inaccurate information related to Mr. Schultz." The motion did not detail any inaccuracies.
Schultz, along with suspended athletic director Tim Curley, faces charges of perjury and failure to report child abuse in connection with a 2001 allegation lodged against Sandusky, the former assistant football coach convicted on 45 counts of child sex abuse. Both men have entered not-guilty pleas.
But Freeh's report last month, commissioned by Penn State trustees, implicated both Schultz and Curley, as well as Spanier and the late football coach Joe Paterno, in a conspiracy to downplay their knowledge of Sandusky's crimes.
In a series of e-mails cited by Freeh, the four administrators decided not to report Sandusky to outside authorities after graduate assistant Mike McQueary said in 2001 that he had seen the former coach and what appeared to be a 10-year-old boy in a compromising position in a football locker-room shower.
Curley and Schultz have maintained that they were never made aware of the severity of McQueary's claims, saying they thought he was alleging nothing more than horseplay.
Schultz attorney George Matangos was not immediately available for comment.
