Key Penn State witness seeks whistleblower lawsuit
McQueary, key witness in Sandusky case, files notice of whistleblower suit against Penn State
By The Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) ' The Penn State football assistant whose report of Jerry Sandusky attacking a child in the showers led to Joe Paterno's firing says he's suing the school.

Mike McQueary filed a notice of a lawsuit based on whistleblower protections Tuesday in Centre County. The filing was first reported by the Centre Daily Times.

McQueary was a graduate assistant a decade ago, when he reported witnessing the incident to Paterno. McQueary is a key prosecution witness in the child sexual abuse case against former assistant Sandusky.

The notice wasn't accompanied by a full complaint. McQueary lawyer Elliott Strokoff didn't respond to a phone message Tuesday.

A Penn State spokesman says that McQueary remains on the payroll and that school officials can't comment because they haven't seen the filing.
