Chester County Judge Appointed to McQueary's Case

by on October 19, 2012 6:00 AM

No court dates have been set, but on Thursday the state Supreme Court appointed Senior Judge Thomas Gavin to preside over former wideouts coach Mike McQueary's case against Penn State. 

On Oct. 2, McQueary followed through on his writ served to Penn State in May and filed a civil suit, suing the university for $4 million in damages. He cited not being able to get a coaching job and suffering "public scorn and vilification" as some of the reasons for his legal action. 

McQueary testified before a grand jury in 2010 and at Jerry Sandusky's trial in June that he walked in on the former defensive coordinator abusing a boy in the Lasch Football Building locker room shower on Feb. 9, 2001. 

University officials have said they are pursuing settling the each suit as quickly as possible. 

Court dates will be announced as they become available.
