Paterno lawyer: PSU trustees rushed to judgment
Family's lawyer: PSU trustees' statement is a sign they rushed to judgment in Paterno decision
By The Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) ' The lawyer for the late Joe Paterno says his family was surprised and saddened by a report by Penn State trustees that cited a "failure of leadership" for the longtime football coach's ouster.

Wick Sollers says in a statement that the board's report Monday was another attempt to "deflect criticism of their leadership by trying to focus the blame on Joe Paterno."

Paterno was fired Nov. 9, days after retired assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested on child sex abuse charges. The board found that while Paterno fulfilled a legal obligation to relay an employee's accusation of witnessing alleged abuse, it said Paterno should have done more.



Sollers said the latest statement reaffirms that the board did not conduct its own thorough investigation and engaged in a rush to judgment.
