BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State’s attorneys want a judge to seal any documents they hand over to the estate of late football coach Joe Paterno, claiming his family plans to use them “to conduct a public relations campaign.”
Attorneys for the NCAA and the Paternos have also filed requests on how they’d like the documents to be handled by the court. The Penn State request, though filed last week, wasn’t listed on the Centre County courts website until Monday.READ MORE: Fight Outside Pat's Steaks In South Philadelphia Ends With 1 Person Dead, Victim's Father And Friend Hospitalized
