Jury awards ex-Penn State assistant coach $7.3M in defamation suit

Mike McQueary, the whistleblower in the Jerry Sandusky case, was awarded $7.3 million by a Centre County (Pa.) jury Thursday following a two-week trial.

The jury of eight women and four men, including two Penn State employees, said after deliberating for nearly four hours that Penn State defamed and misrepresented the former assistant football coach for the role he played in the prosecution of Sandusky and the three administrators accused of covering up the widespread sexual abuse of minors. 484 more words
