Former assistant football coach Mike McQueary has filed suit against Penn State seeking $4,000,000.00 in damages based on claims for defamation, misrepresentation, and whistleblower. McQueary complains that Penn State misrepresented to him that it was going to conduct an investigation into the acts he saw performed by Jerry Sandusky. According to the compliant, unbeknownst to McQueary, Penn State knew it was going to avoid an investigation of the matter. McQueary, further, claims Penn State defamed him when President Spanier openly indicated that McQueary lied to investigators about reports he made of sexual misconduct. He also claims that Penn State singled him out and refused to pay for his legal fees; whereas, other assistant coaches’ legal fees were paid and they were afforded opportunities to interview for their jobs. McQueary claims he was informed by a news report that he was being released from his position. As a result of the foregoing, McQueary complains that these matters have caused him great distress, anxiety, humiliation, and embarrassment. The complaint can be read here.
