Judge In Ex-PSU Prez's Endangerment Case Won't Recuse
Law360 (August 10, 2018, 8:13 PM EDT) -- A Pennsylvania appeals court judge concluded Friday that his decade-old criticism of Penn State University's plans to relocate its law school did not warrant his disqualification from ex-university President Graham Spanier's appeal of a child endangerment conviction stemming from the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal.
Spanier had moved for Judge Victor Stabile's recusal last month after learning, in the wake of a decision upholding his conviction in June, that the judge had made critical comments about the university's plans to relocate or establish a new campus for the Dickinson School of Law after Penn State acquired it in 2000.
