Pennsylvania's governor says he is suing the National Collegiate Athletics Association in federal court over harsh sanctions imposed on Penn State. Those sanctions followed a child sexual abuse scandal involving Jerry Sandusky, an ex-assistant football coach. The penalties included millions in fines, a four-year bowl ban and the forfeiture of 112 wins by its football team and were signed off on by the university. But Gov. Tom Corbett says the penalties are unfair and filed an anti-trust suit.
