A hearing will be held to discuss access to source documents for the Freeh report.
Attorneys for Penn State and some of its trustees met for a status conference Tuesday with specially presiding Bedford County Judge Daniel Howsare to see where the issue of allowing the trustees to review the source materials from former FBI director Louis Freeh’s commissioned investigation of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal will go.
“Essentially the court is going to enter an order that sets a schedule for the matter to be decided,” alumni-elected trustee attorney Dan Brier said after the conference.
Brier said that there will be arguments in court on Sept. 8, with briefs expected Sept. 22 and replies on Oct. 1. A ruling could then come as early as October.
