State, NCAA get delay for talks in Penn State suit

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A federal judge is giving the NCAA and Pennsylvania officials a month to try to work out a possible settlement of a lawsuit over the penalties Penn State is paying for mishandling the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.

Judge Yvette Kane granted a joint motion Thursday that says that another month would give the parties a "meaningful opportunity" to resolve the lawsuit.

Kane's one-paragraph order directs the parties to give her a status report in early September.

The NCAA is suing Gov. Tom Corbett, state Treasurer Rob McCord and two other state officials over a 2013 law that requires a $60 million penalty being paid by Penn State to stay within Pennsylvania.
