The Pennsylvania Supreme Court today issued an order denying one of Jerry Sandusky's attorneys the right to appeal a protective order issued shortly after the former Penn State University assistant coach's child sex abuse trial.

The state attorney general's office requested a protective order, granted four days after Sandusky was found guilty in June 2012 on 45 of 48 counts, because investigative materials not used at trial were being leaked to reporters.

Karl Rominger, who helped defend the former coach, appealed that order.

Mr. Rominger and Joseph Amendola, the lead defense attorney, denied leaking any information.

The state Superior Court denied his appeal in July.

The Supreme Court denied any allowance for appeal with no further explanation.
