by on August 21, 2013 1:22 PM

A pretrial hearing is scheduled in the Paterno family lawsuit against the National Collegiate Athletic Association for 10 a.m. Oct. 29 at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte, according to court documents filed Wednesday.

At the hearing, all outstanding preliminary objections will be heard. The plaintiffs, including the Paterno family, multiple members of the Penn State Board of Trustees, Penn State faculty members and former Penn State football players, are to reply to any objections the NCAA makes by Sept. 6. The objecting parties will then have another 20 days to respond.

The lawsuit, filed earlier this year, seeks to overturn the sanctions that were levied on Penn State’s football program.

The plaintiff's are suing both the NCAA as well as NCAA President Mark Emmert and former Chairman of the NCAA Executive Committee Ed Ray for breach of contract, intentional interference with contractual relations, civil conspiracy, defamation and commercial disparagement.
