Mike McQueary Files Whistleblower Lawsuit Against Penn State
STATE COLLEGE (KDKA) — There’s a new development related to the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse case.
Mike McQueary, the former assistant football coach who claims he witnessed Sandusky raping a boy in the showers of the Lasch Football Building on campus, has filed a whistleblower lawsuit against Penn State.
He is seeking millions of dollars in damages after his firing.
When McQueary worked for Penn State, according to the lawsuit, he was making $140,400 a year in addition to having a university vehicle and a cell phone.
The lawsuit outlines what McQueary wants the university to pay him for, including a bowl bonus that he would have received if he had not been placed on administrative leave and payment of his legal fees.
He also wants compensation for “distress, anxiety and embarrassment.”
McQueary is demanding at least $4 million.
