Former Penn state Interim Senior Vice President for Finance and Business Gary Schultz filed a writ of summons today, indicating he intends to sue former Penn State legal counsel Cynthia Baldwin for legal malpractice, according to court documents.
Schultz, as well as former Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley have filed motions to have their preliminary hearings pushed back, saying they believed Baldwin was representing them in front of the grand jury when they testified in front of the grand jury for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case, as previously reported. Baldwin later testified in front of the grand jury against Curley and Schultz, as well as former Penn State President Graham Spanier. Baldwin has since said she was actually representing the university, as previously reported.
The preliminary hearings for all three men have been pushed back.
Sandusky was convicted in June on 45 counts of sexually abusing boys he met through his charity, The Second Mile. Sandusky was sentenced in October to serve 30 to 60 years in prison. All three men are facing charges of perjury, child endangerment, obstruction of justice and failure to report suspected abuse, as well as conspiracy to commit the previously mentioned crimes.
All three men continue to maintain their innocence.
