Officials seek mediation in suit

HARRISBURG (AP) — Two elected officials suing the NCAA over the use of its $60 million fine from Penn State over how it handled the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal are seeking court-ordered mediation.

State Sen. Jake Corman, a Republican who represents State College, and Democratic state Treasurer Rob McCord made the request to Commonwealth Court on Thursday. They’re trying to keep the fine money in Pennsylvania.

McCord issued a statement saying he was hoping for a “reasonable settlement” that will more quickly help Pennsylvanians who have been victims of child abuse.

Penn State agreed to the penalties a year ago, along with a temporary loss of football scholarships and a four-year ban on post-season play.
