New Attorneys Added to Paterno v. NCAA suit

by on August 27, 2013 6:55 AM

Six new attorneys were added yesterday to represent the plaintiffs in the Paterno family's lawsuit against the National Collegiate Athletic Association, according to court documents.

Attorneys Paul Kelly, Mark Jensen, L. Joseph Loveland, Joseph Sollers, John Commisso and Ashley Parrish were added Monday to the suit.

The Paterno family filed the lawsuit earlier this year, seeking to overturn the sanctions placed on Penn State's football program last summer.

The plaintiffs are suing the NCAA, NCAA President Mark Emmert and former NCAA Executive Committee Chairman Ed Ray for breach of contact, intentional interference with contractual relations, civil conspiracy, defamation and commercial disparagement.

The plaintiffs, besides the Paterno, include some members of the Penn State Board of Trustees, Penn State faculty members and former Penn State Football players.

A hearing in the case is scheduled for 10 a.m. Oct. 29 where all outstanding preliminary objections will be heard.
