A date has been scheduled for the case involving former Penn State President Graham Spanier filing to force Penn State to turn over emails now part of the Freeh investigation.
An Argument for Preliminary Objections is scheduled for August 17, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. in Courtroom 1 of the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte, according to court documents.
Spanier filed in May to force the university to release emails that had been obtained in the internal investigation by Judge Louis Freeh.
Penn State filed in mid-June requesting the courts to dismiss Spanier's complaint, saying that it is under order from the State Attorney General not to turn over the emails.
The emails contained information about Spanier's knowledge of a 2001 incident involving Sandusky and a boy in the showers of the Lasch Football Building. In the emails, Spanier is quoted as saying it would be "humane" to Sandusky not to report the alleged incident.
In a recent filing Spanier and his attorneys wrote that the university has no legal obligation to obey the directive of the Attorney General, and that the university is "complying with a mere request" from the Attorney General.
Sandusky, the former Penn State defensive coach, was charged with 45 counts of child sex abuse.
