Grand Jury Judge Decries Delays in Curley/Schultz Case, Urges Lawyers to Get Going

by on May 07, 2013 2:30 PM

It has been nearly 18 months since Gary Schultz and Tim Curley were arrested, and judge Barry Feudale, who presided over the grand jury that led to the charges, is tired of waiting.

Both men, along with former Penn State President Graham Spanier, face charges of perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children, failure to properly report suspected abuse and conspiracy stemming from the Jerry Sandusky fallout.

In a ruling today on a procedural issue, Feudale criticized the Curley and Schultz and their attorneys for trying to delay the proceedings.

“In this Court’s view Defendants’ various motions, appeals and assertions (all of which are within their rights) are an attempt to delay the case from being heard before the proper tribunals,” the ruling reads.

The two men are attempting to get the grand jury testimony against them thrown out because they believe former Penn State General Counsel Cynthia Baldwin misrepresented them during the grand jury process.

Feudale also had some advice for Kathleen Kane’s office to conclude his footnote.

“The Office of Attorney General should proceed to move this case forward absent a stay by the Supreme Court,” the ruling read. “Continued delay of this case is not in the interest of justice as to Defendants and the alleged victims.”
