BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — One of Jerry Sandusky’s attorneys is challenging the trial judge’s order designed to figure out if lawyers have been leaking information about the case.
Defense attorney Karl Rominger on Thursday appealed Judge John Cleland’s June 26 order that told Sandusky’s lawyers to give him a sworn statement listing all material they obtained from prosecutors and then gave to anyone else.
Cleland didn’t say what prompted it, but the order was issued the same day NBC reported it had obtained an audiotape of Sandusky’s son Matt saying he had been molested by his adoptive father.
Rominger is arguing that Cleland’s order would violate the protections afforded to attorneys’ work products.
