A senior judge from Potter County has been assigned to hear the Paterno family's lawsuit against the NCAA.

Acting at the request of Centre County President Judge Thomas Kistler, Pennsylvania Supreme Court Chief Justice Ronald Castille on Thursday assigned Potter County Senior Judge John B. Leete to hear the lawsuit.

The suit, filed by the estate of the late Coach Joe Paterno and a group of former Penn State football players and university professors, seeks to overturn the NCAA's sanctions against the Penn State football program in the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

It also seeks damages and legal costs.
