Judge Thomas Gavin ruled in favor of Mike McQueary’s whistleblower claim against the university Wednesday, adding to a jury’s $7.3 million verdict issued last month for defamation and misrepresentation.

McQueary had told investigators he saw Sandusky sexually abuse a boy in a team shower in 2001. After Sandusky’s arrest, McQueary was put on leave with pay and hasn’t returned to coaching.

Gavin is concluding that Penn State retaliated against McQueary.

The judge is awarding McQueary legal fees, nearly $4 million in lost wages and $1 million for humiliation and harm to his reputation.

A university spokesman declined to immediately comment.
