— The lawyers for former Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary requested Wednesday six subpoenas for the litigation of his whistle-blower and defamation lawsuit against the university.

McQueary lawyer William “Tim” Fleming asked for three subpoenas for witnesses and three subpoenas for the production of documents or other materials. Fleming wrote in the request that the subpoenas are for the discovery process.

Earlier this month, a Penn State lawyer asked for 10 subpoenas.

McQueary is suing Penn State for more than $4 million in punitive damages and lost wages.

His lawsuit claims Penn State didn’t renew his contract because he cooperated with state authorities who were investigating Jerry Sandusky and that former Penn State president Graham Spanier defamed him in making public comments in support of ex-administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz after they were indicted on perjury charges.

Penn State denies the claims in McQueary’s lawsuit.
