HARRISBURG — Lawyers for the NCAA, Gov. Tom Corbett and others involved in a lawsuit about the Penn State penalties over child sex abuse by former defensive coach Jerry Sandusky are asking a judge to give them a month to work on a possible settlement.

The sides filed a joint motion Wednesday that says another month would give them a “meaningful opportunity” to resolve the lawsuit.

The NCAA is suing Mr. Corbett, state Treasurer Rob McCord and two other state officials over a 2013 law that requires a $60 million penalty being paid by Penn State over Sandusky to stay within Pennsylvania.

The NCAA argues that the law violates the U.S. Constitution.
