STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Joe Paterno's family says it's encouraged by word that Pennsylvania's governor is filing a federal lawsuit against the NCAA over its sanctions against Penn State.


The late football coach's family released a statement Wednesday that says that Gov. Tom Corbett now realizes, as do many others, that there was an inexcusable rush to judgment in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.


The NCAA imposed a $60 million fine, a multiyear bowl ban and other penalties in the wake of a report by former FBI Director Louis Freeh that concluded Paterno and other Penn State officials covered up abuse reports. The scandal cost Paterno his job two months before his death last January at age 85.


Corbett says he is seeking to get the NCAA sanctions tossed.
