Mike McQueary Files Defamation Lawsuit Against Penn State

Mike McQueary, a key witness in the trial that led to Jerry Sandusky’s arrest for child molestation, has filed a lawsuit against Penn State for defamation, misrepresentation, and whistle-blower charges. The complaint alleges, among other things, that McQueary’s cooperation with investigators back in 2001 led to the suspension and eventual firing of the former assistant football coach. The complaint also alleges that his treatment by the university since Sandusky was arrested in November has caused him distress, anxiety, humiliation and embarrassment. The lawsuit seeks millions of dollars in damages and legal fees.
