The network announced on its website that it would have the exclusive interview with Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach. The interview is said to be excerpts of interviews Sandusky had with independent filmmaker John Ziegler. "The former longtime defensive coordinator will describe what he says happened on the campus, and what he thinks of whistleblower Mike McQueary and late head coach Joe Paterno," the network said.

HARRISBURG - A whistle-blower and defamation lawsuit against Pennsylvania State University will go forward, a judge ruled Tuesday, denying the school's request to have it dismissed. Former assistant football coach Mike McQueary sued the school in October, claiming he was portrayed as untruthful in statements made in 2011 by the university's president after Jerry Sandusky's arrest on charges of child sexual abuse. Judge Thomas Gavin said McQueary's lawsuit makes sufficient claims of "outrageous conduct" on the part of the school to keep the case alive.

BELLEFONTE, Pa. - A judge has scheduled a hearing in former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach Mike McQueary's lawsuit against the school. Court papers filed Friday indicate the March 18 hearing will be short. Penn State sought to have the lawsuit dismissed or put on hold while criminal charges are pending against two school administrators, but Judge Thomas Galvin earlier denied the request for a delay. McQueary is seeking millions of dollars in damages in a defamation and whistle-blower lawsuit against Penn State in connection with a child sex-abuse scandal involving former coach Jerry Sandusky.

Former coach Mike McQueary, who testified that he witnessed Jerry Sandusky raping a child in a Pennsylvania State University locker-room shower, might have been unduly influenced by overzealous investigators, Sandusky said in an interview broadcast on Today on Monday. "His story changed a lot," said Sandusky, 69, who is serving a 30- to 60-year jail term for his conviction last year on sexual-abuse charges. "I don't understand how anybody would have walked into that locker room from where he was and heard sounds, associated that was sex going on," he said before pausing to laugh.

Pennsylvania State University wants a judge to put former assistant football coach Mike McQueary's defamation and whistle-blower lawsuit against the university on hold. Lawyers for Penn State filed a motion Monday in Centre County Court, asking to prevent the lawsuit from moving forward while criminal charges are pending against two school administrators. The school argues that it wouldn't be fair to have the case proceed until the criminal charges are resolved against athletic director Tim Curley, who is now on leave, and retired vice president Gary Schultz.

MIKE MCQUEARY is expected to be a key witness for prosecutors in the child-sex-abuse case against former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky. Now, McQueary's friends are trying to save his image in the court of public opinion. The Penn State wide-receivers coach was put on leave last week after he was harshly criticized for appearing to have walked out of a locker room after allegedly witnessing Sandusky raping a young boy in 2002. But in two emails to friends that leaked out this week, McQueary said he had done more than just walk out. "I did stop it, not physically . . . but made sure it was stopped when I left that locker room," McQueary said in an email dated Nov. 8, and first obtained yesterday by the Allentown Morning Call . "No one can imagine my thoughts or wants to be in my shoes for those 30-45 seconds . . . trust me. " He wrote that he had "discussions with police and with the official at the university in charge of police.

In a jail house interview broadcast on NBC's Today show Monday morning, Jerry Sandusky sought to discredit former coach Mike McQueary's testimony that he saw Sandusky raping a child in a Penn State football locker-room shower in 2002. "I think there's a lot of things that transpired," Sandusky said in the interview. "I think these investigators, the way they went about business, his story changed a lot. " Sandusky, 69, went on: "I don't understand how anybody would have walked into that locker room from where he was and heard sounds associated that was sex going on," he said, before pausing to laugh.

A Pennsylvania judge cleared the way Thursday for former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach Mike McQueary to proceed with a whistle-blower lawsuit against the school. Judge Thomas Gavin ruled that ongoing criminal cases against three ex-university administrators had little bearing on McQueary's claim that he lost his job because he cooperated with state investigators prosecuting the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal last year. Penn State had sought to put the suit on hold until those criminal cases were resolved, arguing that testimony from the former officials would be key to their defending against the claims.

HARRISBURG - A Pennsylvania judge on Thursday denied Penn State's request to put on hold former assistant football coach Mike McQueary's whistleblower and defamation lawsuit until related criminal cases are resolved. Judge Thomas Gavin said the pending criminal matters "impose no burden on Penn State" because the university is neither a prosecutor nor defendant in the cases against former administrators Graham Spanier, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz. McQueary, who testified in June that he complained to then-head coach Joe Paterno after seeing defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky naked in a shower with a boy, is pursuing a civil suit against the school.

HARRISBURG - More than two years in the making, a package of bills to strengthen the state's child-protection laws was approved by legislators Wednesday and sent to the governor. One bill widens the net for adults who could be held responsible in suspected child abuse. Another seeks to improve coordination among county and law enforcement agencies that investigate such claims. But a bill mandating that suspected abuse be reported directly to state welfare officials - a requirement some say could have snagged Jerry Sandusky years before his arrest - is on hold at least until January.

HARRISBURG - As the clock ran down on his coaching career, Joe Paterno offered a damning assessment of Pennsylvania State University's top administrators and how they dealt with reports of Jerry Sandusky's abusing children, according to former assistant football coach Mike McQueary. "He said Old Main screwed it up," McQueary testified in Dauphin County Court on Monday, using the name of Penn State's administration building to denote those who worked in it. Then, just before he was fired - his reputation in shambles as a result of the Sandusky scandal - Paterno offered a warning, McQueary testified: The administrators could not be trusted, and would "try to scapegoat" the young assistant coach, who had told him and other top officials in 2001 that he saw Sandusky sexually assault a boy in a campus shower.

Joe Paterno is dead and Jerry Sandusky is in prison, but litigation from the child sex-abuse scandal at Pennsylvania State University goes on. This week, Penn State filed suit against its longtime insurance company, saying the firm failed to honor obligations regarding claims arising from the Sandusky case. The latest suit shows how the impact of Sandusky's conviction continues to reverberate across Pennsylvania, from the pending criminal case against three former top administrators, to civil suits filed by the former assistant coach's victims, and lawsuits filed by Gov. Corbett and the NCAA against each other.

In filings in Centre County Court, the university asked a judge to throw out a state whistle-blower lawsuit brought by Mike McQueary, arguing that any damage he endured as a result of his role as a prosecution witness was not caused by Penn State. So far, McQueary has failed to provide any evidence suggesting that Penn State officials publicly questioned his character, university counsel Nancy Conrad wrote.
