BREAKING: NCAA files lawsuit against Gov. #Corbett, state officials over attempts to keep #PennState fines in Pennsylvania.

Dominate The State
Actually not a bad legal argument, but I can't wait to see the antitrust case play out... This has absolutely nothing to do with that separate case... But still, interesting stuff indeed.

WE ARE! And we will always be...
Here is the article:
This makes me think that the NCAA may be willing to put up a fight with regards to the PSU sanctions.
They'll attempt to drag it on until the sanctions are over or Corbett isn't reelected.
Hope he (Corbett) doesn't pull an Erickson....tucking his tail and running off on us.
Why wouldn't they?
I guess we will see how AG Kane handles this.
Well alot of people were claiming that the NCAA wouldn't want to go through the discovery process that would involve a lawsuit. However, filing a lawsuit against Pennsylvania makes me think that they may be willing to drag this out more than people initially thought. Either that or they feel like the PA suit against them will be dismissed.
Didn't the AG turn it over to the Governor' Office and his legal team?
It's beyond me why the NCAA even cares where the money is spent. It happened in PA, to PA kids..........who cares? What a bunch of asshats.
There it is, very first paragraph bringing up the sanctions agreement between the NCAA and Penn State.
Seriously, whoever knew about that agreement needs to resign right now. If Rod signed it alone he needs to go, if some of the board knew they need to go.
Every fight the NCAA has with PA and Penn State is going to start with....well the school did sign this thing....
I think the NCAA has a point in that if they claim this money as their own, the state of PA telling them what do with it would be unconstitutional.

They wont be able to do that...
Because to them - it is a fungible a line of cash. They can basically do whatever the f*ck they want with that cash.
"They would disrupt interstate commerce by attempting to legislate where private parties spend their money and by confiscating funds intended for the victims of child sexual abuse nationwide to be used solely for the benefit of Pennsylvania residents, at the direction of Pennsylvania officials, the lawsuit said."
Basically "they [PA] are trying to steal back what we [NCAA] stole!"
New game, this is now state law. AG should be the one.
As opposed to taking state funds (yes, state funds. They can not be separated from other funds at PSU) and using it elsewhere as their own?

Corbett needs a victory before the election. He'll use his influence to get this case moving.
You're right, but the NCAA isn't necessarily wrong either. It's an interesting case.
Guys, no worries. Read the NCAA's motion to dismiss in the other case. This doesn't involve commerce, says the NCAA in PA v. NCAA, so PA's lawyers would be smart to point that out in NCAA v. PA. The NCAA is taking two inconsistent positions here.
I know that your AG had been appointed and the new one is not, however pending statute it may not matter. It has already been legally turned over prior to statute changing.
The university should appeal, that's the only way we play without sanctions until the court cases are settled. Highly doubt that will happen though.
Yeah this is going to be an interesting interpretation... Get your popcorn ready... But again, this has nothing to do with Corbett's other case really... That case is asking the court to overturn the money exchanging hands in the first place. This next year is going to be very interesting.
The University should stay out of it. It'd be like running into a gun fight with a 22 pistol While the Govs Office has an M4
