A website called FramingPaterno.com claims that court documents have been filed in Dauphin County to stop Wednesday night's scheduled airing of an interview with two prosecutors in the Jerry Sandusky case.

According to FramingPaterno.com Tim Curley and Gary Schultz have filed an emergency motion with the court to prevent Showtime from airing portions of an interview with former chief deputy attorney general Frank Fina.

FramingPaterno.com says the court motion was filed "because of inappropriate remarks" regarding the alleged guilt of Curley and Schultz.

Tuesday evening, CBS News aired a portion of the interview, featuring Fina and former lead prosecutor Joseph P. McGettigan III.

In that interview, Fina says Penn State administrators, "were actively obstructing our investigation." Fina goes on to say that the obstruction of evidence went on for many years.

The website, includes what appears to be a court document filed on behalf of Gary Schultz. An email to a Dauphin County court spokesperson late Wednesday was not immediately returned. The authenticity of that purported document cannot be confirmed.

The document posted on FramingPaterno.com says, "It is clear from publicized portions of the interview that Mr. Fina violates the most fundamental rules of professional conduct for prosecutors: the prohibitions against giving interviews in open cases that may harm a defendants right to a fair trial and expressing a personal opinion of a defendant's guilt."

It's not clear whether or how those reported rules would apply to a former prosecutor.

FramingPaterno.com is a website that's dedicated to questioning investigations into the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
