Penn State's student trustee, who's from Allentown, says he was pressured to drop out of a lawsuit against the NCAA.

Peter Khoury says he was threatened with being removed from the search committee that's looking for a new school president.

The lawsuit was filed by the family of Joe Paterno.

Four other trustees are still part of the lawsuit.

It's trying to overturn NCAA penalties against Penn State for the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

Penn State says the lawsuit conflicts with the school's position.

The school will likely only seek to modify the penalties.
