AP seeks unsealing of PSU defendants’ files

HARRISBURG (AP) — A Pennsylvania appeals court is being asked to review a judge’s decision to keep sealed some of the filings in the criminal cases of three former Penn State University administrators.

The Associated Press on Monday notified Judge John Boccabella it was appealing to Superior Court his order last month granting access to some sealed records, but leaving many others out of view.

The judge ruled it wasn’t feasible to unseal the titles of docket entries.

He also didn’t allow access to records relating to proffers to the court or involving claims of attorney-client privilege.

Former Penn State president Graham Spanier was found guilty on March 24 of misdemeanor child endangerment.

His former lieutenants Gary Schultz and Tim Curley pleaded guilty to the same offense.

All three await sentencing.
