Penn State Scandal: Former Assistant Mike McQueary To Sue Penn State

Former Penn State wide receivers coach Mike McQueary has filed a notice of intent to sue Penn State, according to the Centre Daily Times.

The Times reports that Elliot Strokoff, McQueary's Harrisburg-based lawyer, filed a writ of summons in Centre County court earlier on Tuesday, which notifies the university that he intends to sue it.

McQueary is reportedly seeking damages as a whisleblower that are outside normal arbitration limits, according to the four-page document. The document does not, though, outline the details of the lawsuit.

The former assistant testified during a grand jury investigation last year that he witnessed former Nittany Lions' defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky in an "extremely sexual" situation with a young boy in the showers of Penn State's Lasch Building in 2002. Recent court documents indicate that the incident actually happened in 2001.

McQueary is currently on paid administrative leave. He was placed on leave last November.
