STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – The NCAA asked a Pennsylvania court on Tuesday to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the family of late coach Joe Paterno that seeks to overturn the sanctions against Penn State for the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal.
Some trustees, ex-players and coaches and faculty members are also taking part in the same lawsuit, which the NCAA said was flawed.
The sanctions from 2012 included a four-year bowl ban, steep scholarship cuts and a $60 million fine.
