The state Supreme Court granted some requests and denied others for three Penn State officials.

On Wednesday, Justice Correale Stevens issued orders denying without prejudice the applications for extraordinary relief submitted by former Penn State president Graham Spanier, former athletic director Tim Curley and former vice president Gary Schultz.

In the same orders, he also granted the three men’s applications to file under seal and applications for leave to file response.

Curley, Schultz and Spanier are charged with perjury, conspiracy, endangering the welfare of children and obstruction in connection with the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

The Dauphin County case has dragged on for years, with the most recent Supreme Court request by the defendants filed after Judge Todd Hoover denied motions for interlocutory orders for appeal.

Hoover stepped away from the cases last month when he took a leave of absence. A new judge will be hearing the cases.
