Penn State Scandal: Gary Schultz Intends to Sue Cynthia Baldwin
Retired vice president Gary Schultz is intending to file suit against former Penn State counsel Cynthia Baldwin for legal malpractice, according to court documents filed Wednesday in Centre County.
There have been conflicting statements regarding Baldwin’s role in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. Schultz’s counsel has said Baldwin violated attorney-client privilege when she testified against him to the grand jury. Schultz also presumed Baldwin was representing him, however Baldwin has said she represented the university when accompanying Schultz and former athletic director Tim Curley to testify in front of the grand jury in Jan. 2011.
Schultz, Curley and former Penn State President Graham Spanier, all charged in connection with the Sandusky case, were scheduled for a preliminary hearing Thursday in Harrisburg before the court delayed the proceedings indefinitely.
All three men maintain their innocence.
