Penn State's former vice president and former athletic director are facing a second loss in state appeals court, nearly two weeks after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled against them.

State Superior Court on Tuesday threw out a pair of appeals filed by Gary Schultz and Tim Curley. They'd asked the judges to review a decision by a grand jury supervisory judge that he didn't have jurisdiction to decide whether to dismiss charges against them.

The state attorney general's office and Schultz's lawyer, Tom Farrell, are declining comment. A message left for Curley's legal team wasn't returned.

The two men and former Penn State president Graham Spanier are accused of a criminal cover-up of complaints about Jerry Sandusky behaving inappropriately with boys. Sandusky was convicted last year of child sexual abuse.
