• Penn State's request to delay McQueary suit denied

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) (AP)ong> - A Pennsylvania judge is denying Penn State's request to put on hold former assistant coach Mike McQueary's lawsuit until related criminal cases are resolved.

    Judge Thomas Gavin's order issued Thursday said the criminal cases "impose no burden on Penn State" because it is neither a prosecutor or defendant in the cases against former university administrators Graham Spanier, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz.

    McQueary, who testified in June he complained to then-coach Joe Paterno after seeing Jerry Sandusky naked in a shower with a boy, is pursuing a whistleblower and defamation case against the school.

    Penn State spokesman Dave La Torre declined comment, and McQueary lawyer Elliott Strokoff didn't immediately return a message.

    Sandusky is serving a decades-long prison sentence after his conviction for sexual abuse of 10 boys.
