Penn State Whistleblower Gets $1.7 Million in Legal Fees Paid
Mike McQueary was a key witness in the sexual abuse scandal.
Published at 7:17 PM EDT on Mar 31, 2017


A former Penn State assistant coach is getting his legal fees paid after winning a whistleblower claim over his treatment by the university after Jerry Sandusky's child molestation arrest.

Judge Thomas Gavin on Thursday granted Mike McQueary's lawyers $1.7 million for their work on the case.

That's on top of the nearly $5 million Gavin awarded to McQueary in November.

The judge's new order is also giving McQueary $15,000 for a bowl bonus he would have earned if the school hadn't suspended him from coaching after Sandusky's arrest in November 2011. Penn State is also being ordered to pay about $34,000 in other legal costs.

A jury previously granted McQueary $7.3 million for defamation and misrepresentation.

Penn State says its lawyers haven't analyzed the judge's decision on legal fees.

Penn State Trustee Quits Race Week After Sandusky Comments
Published 2 hours ago

A Penn State University trustee who told a publication he was "running out of sympathy'' for people he described as "so-called victims'' of Jerry Sandusky said Wednesday he is no longer seeking a second term on the board.

Alumni-elected trustee Al Lord's announcement during a forum was first reported by Pennlive.com.

The retired bank executive drew criticism for his Sandusky comments to The Chronicle of Higher Education. The comments followed former Penn State president Graham Spanier's misdemeanor child endangerment conviction on March 24 for his handling of a 2001 complaint against Sandusky.

Lord, elected in 2014, has been part of a group of nine alumni-elected trustees who have clashed with other board members about how the university has responded to the scandal involving Sandusky, the school's retired defensive football coach now in prison on a child molestation conviction.

"I'll continue to work with you guys,'' Lord told other alumni candidates. "I'm just not sitting through any more of those meetings.''

Lord sent an email to the Chronicle after Spanier's conviction that said he was "running out of sympathy for 35 yr old, so-called victims with 7 digit net worth.''

He released a statement several days ago to the Daily Collegian, the Penn State student newspaper, apologizing for "any pain the comment may have caused actual victims.''

Anthony Lubrano, a fellow alumni-elected trustee and Lord ally, said Lord told him the decision not to seek another term was not related to his comments to the Chronicle. :rolleyes:

"Of course I'm disappointed,'' said Lubrano, who deferred comment on Lord's comments regarding Sandusky victims. "Al was the most cerebral member of the board. He'll be missed.''

It's unclear whether Lord's name will appear on board election ballots that will start going out Monday. A university spokeswoman said Wednesday that vendors will have to be alerted soon to change the ballots. The election runs through May 4.

Eight men testified at Sandusky's trial they had been sexually abused by the former coach when they were children. Sandusky was convicted of abusing all of them along with two others.

The school has said it has settled civil claims of abuse at Sandusky's hands with at least 33 men, paying out more than $90 million. The Sandusky scandal has cost the school much more than that, including NCAA and federal sanctions and fines, as well as legal fees, public relations costs and the expense of making significant structural and procedural changes.

Lord was a strong supporter of Spanier and attended his trial. He told the Chronicle he wondered why Sandusky victims "were so prominent in trial.''

Only one Sandusky victim testified at Spanier's trial, a young man who said he had been abused in a team shower by Sandusky after the 2001 shower incident that Spanier and other top administrators handled.

Two of Spanier's former lieutenants, former university vice president Gary Schultz and former athletic director Tim Curley, struck plea deals on the eve of their trials to misdemeanor child endangerment and testified for the prosecution.

Spanier, Curley and Schultz all await sentencing, which has not been scheduled.

Sandusky is serving a 30- to 60-year prison term but maintains he is innocent and is pursuing appeals. Spanier's lawyers have said he also plans to appeal.

Leaders Urge Penn St. Trustee to Quit After Sandusky Remarks
By Mark Scolforo
Published at 8:26 PM EDT on Apr 6, 2017 | Updated at 8:29 PM EDT on Apr 6, 2017

The two highest-ranking leaders on Penn State University's board said Thursday a fellow trustee should immediately step down over comments aimed at people he described as "so-called victims" of Jerry Sandusky.

Chairman Ira Lubert and Vice Chairman Mark Dambly called trustee Al Lord's comments offensive and embarrassing to the board majority, the university community and sexual assault victims.

"We strongly condemn them," Lubert and Dambly said in a statement sent to reporters by the university's office of strategic communications. "Members of this board must hold themselves to a higher standard and represent our university with respect for all."

Lord did not return a phone message seeking comment.

His remarks were sent to a reporter for The Chronicle of Higher Education shortly after former university president Graham Spanier's trial ended with a misdemeanor conviction last month. Lord has been a supporter of Spanier's and attended the trial.

Lord is part of a block of nine alumni-elected trustees who have repeatedly clashed with the board majority over the university's response to the Sandusky scandal. Sandusky's arrest and 2012 conviction for 45 counts of child sexual abuse has sharply divided the university community.

"Once again, we have a group of trustees stomping on our freedom of speech rights," said alumni-elected trustee Anthony Lubrano, a Lord ally. "Al Lord made a comment that was very personal, well within his right. And I think Al should stay on the board until the conclusion of his term."

Lord, a retired bank executive, announced during a Wednesday candidates' forum that he was no longer seeking a second term on the Penn State board. Ballots go out next week in an election that runs through May 4. Lord's term expires June 30. Among those running is Jay Paterno, the son of former head coach Joe Paterno, who was Sandusky's boss for decades.

Lord told the Chronicle after Spanier's conviction that he was "running out of sympathy for 35 yr old, so-called victims with 7 digit net worth." He followed that with a statement earlier this week to the Penn State student newspaper that apologized for "any pain the comment may have caused actual victims."

The university has paid out more than $90 million to settle with at least 33 people who had claims of abuse at Sandusky's hands, one of the issues that has divided the university board.

A jury on March 24 convicted Spanier of misdemeanor child endangerment over his handling of a 2001 complaint about Sandusky showering with a boy.

Two of Spanier's former top lieutenants who also were involved in dealing with the 2001 complaint, former vice president Gary Schultz and former athletic director Tim Curley, struck plea deals to misdemeanor child endangerment charges and testified for the prosecution. All three await sentencing.

Paterno died of lung cancer in January 2012 and was not accused of any crime. Sandusky is appealing his conviction
