Penn State Seeks Dismissal of Graham Spanier's Breach-Of-Contract Case

Penn State University has filed a motion in Centre County Court seeking dismissal of a breach-of-contract suit brought by former president Graham Spanier. Spanier alleges that university officials have repeatedly violated terms of a November 2011 separation agreement he says contained provisions meant to shield him from university-sponsored criticism over the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. His suit highlights Penn State's publication on its website of the Freeh Report, which said Spanier was complicit in a decision not to take a 2001 sex abuse allegation against Sandusky to authorities; and subsequent media appearances in which trustees criticized Spanier's role in the case and defended their own actions in its aftermath.
