Mike McQueary files whistleblower suit against Penn State
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - October 2, 2012 (WPVI) -- A former Penn State graduate assistant who testified at the trial of former football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky has filed a whistleblower lawsuit against the university seeking millions of dollars in damages.
The suit filed Tuesday by Mike McQueary alleges defamation and misrepresentation and says the university's treatment of him has caused "much distress, anxiety and embarrassment."
McQueary reported seeing Sandusky and a boy in a locker room shower in 2001 but police weren't notified. A Penn State-commissioned report concluded officials concealed the attack due to fears of bad publicity.
McQueary was put on administrative leave in November; his contract expired in June. The suit says his future coaching earnings would have totaled at least $4 million over 25 years.
