Retired Penn State vice president Gary Schultz and athletic director Tim Curley have asked a judge to delay their Jan. 7 perjury trial stemming from the Jerry Sandusky child abuse investigation.

Attorneys for the administrators said in separate motions filed this week that they're still reviewing thousands of documents containing millions of pages that may be relevant to the case -- and that they expect even more documents to come in subject to subpoenas and the discovery process.

Mr. Schultz's attorney, Thomas Farrell, said a Penn State subpoena has produced nine batches of computerized documents, the last being 60 gigabytes, which his motion said is the equivalent of 1.2 million pages.

Mr. Curley, who is on administrative leave and has been told his contract won't be renewed after it expires in June, and Mr. Schultz are accused of lying to the grand jury that investigated Sandusky and not reporting suspected child abuse to the proper authorities.

Sandusky, 68, is appealing his 30- to 60-year state prison sentence and conviction on 45 of 48 charges relating to the abuse of 10 boys, some on Penn State's main campus.

It was not immediately clear when the judge might rule on the request.
