Former Pennsylvania State President Graham Spanier filed notice of plans to sue former FBI director Louis Freeh, claiming slander, libel and defamation in Freeh's probe in the Jerry Sandusks sex abuse case.
The five-page notice was filed in state court in Bellefonte, Pa.
Freeh declined to comment on the notice, citing "pending felony charges" against Spanier.
"Over the past year, Penn State has made a dedicated effort to reform the problems that led to Mr. Sandusky's ability to victimize children on the university campus," Freeh said in an e-mailed statement, according to Bloomberg News. "I trust the changes and improvements that Penn State has put in place will help to build a constructive and protective environment where children will not again suffer abuse."
Freeh concluded in his report that Spanier, former head football coach Joe Paterno, and two other senior school officials hid critical information surrounding Sandusky's abuse.
