McQueary Files Court Papers Asking to Have Subpoenas Issued

by on October 04, 2013 2:46 PM

Former Penn State coach Mike McQueary has filed new court documents for the first time in months; this time demanding subpoenas be issued to obtain unspecified legal documents. 

In the court filing, McQueary is requesting ten subpoenas be issued, to produce documents and discovery material. The court documents did not specify who the subpoenas were to be issued to.

McQueary claims he was fired because of his testimony in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case. McQueary testified that he saw the former Penn State defensive coordinator in a football locker room shower with a young boy on Feb. 1, 2001.

Penn State says that McQueary's contract was simply not renewed and it had nothing to do with the Sandusky testimony. McQueary's employment was terminated when his contract ended in June 2012.

McQueary is suing the university for $4 million in compensation for what he considers irreparable damage to his reputation. He claims he's unable to find a job because of the negative things that have been said about him.

Sandusky was convicted in June 2012 of 45 counts of child sex abuse. He's currently serving a sentence of 30 to 60 years in prison.
