BELLEFONTE, Pa. - A judge has heard arguments on whether former Penn State president Graham Spanier can delay filing his defamation lawsuit against Louis Freeh, the former FBI director the university hired to investigate and report on the Jerry Sandusky child-sex abuse scandal.
Spanier wants to delay the lawsuit until after he and two other former Penn State administrators are tried on criminal charges that they covered up past complaints about Sandusky before he was charged in November 2011 with molesting 10 boys.
Spanier has only filed court notice that he intends to sue Freeh.
Freeh's attorney on Tuesday asked a Centre County judge to force Spanier to file the lawsuit. Freeh's attorney said that's the only way Freeh can counter the prejudice of Spanier's forthcoming allegations.
The judge didn't immediately rule.
Pennsylvania driver's licenses that are compliant with tougher federal anti-terrorism standards should be available in early 2019, according to Gov. Tom Wolf's office.Read More »
