Sen. denied request to intervene in NCAA suit
By: WJAC Web Staff
CENTRE COUNTY, Pa. --
Pennsylvania State Sen. Jack Corman has been denied a request to intervene in a pending lawsuit filed by National Collegiate Athletic Association against the state of Pennsylvania.
The NCAA claims a new law sponsored by Corman is unconstitutional because it would require that money from fines paid by Pennsylvania universities stay in Pennsylvania.
WJAC-TV's news partners at the Centre Daily Times report that Corman sought legal standing so he could ask a judge to dismiss the lawsuit, but his request was denied.
Corman, a Republican from Bellefonte, has his own separate lawsuit pending against the NCAA.
