Statement by Wick Sollers, Counsel to the Paterno Family
We are encouraged by Judge Leete's ruling today that depositions can move forward. Our purpose from the beginning was to uncover the truth in this tragic case. We remain mystified why the University and the NCAA are continuing to fight on every front to maintain the extreme secrecy about how they conducted their investigation in this matter that has such strong public interest. We believe the full record of what transpired between the University, Louis Freeh and the NCAA should be made public. With this ruling, we can proceed with discovery in a timely manner.
