HARRISBURG — The NCAA said Thursday it wants a judge to throw out the federal antitrust lawsuit Gov. Tom Corbett filed against it over Penn State's $60 million fine and other penalties resulting from the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.
College sports' governing body said in a filing Thursday it disagrees with just about every allegation in the complaint filed last month.
The NCAA says the penalties imposed under a July consent decree with the university aren't related to regulation of economic activity, so antitrust law doesn't apply. It also argues Corbett lacks standing to sue. It calls the governor's lawsuit “an inappropriate attempt to drag the federal courts into an intra-state political dispute.”
