In what promises to be the first of many civil suits filed against Penn State stemming from the sex abuse scandal, lawyers for "Victim #2" (the victim whose abuse was witnessed by Michael McQueary in the Penn State Locker room) announced today that they plan to move forward with a lawsuit. The law firm Ross Feller Casey LLP announced:

"Penn State has now admitted and there is no longer any question that its top officials could have and should have prevented these acts. Jerry Sandusky's abuse of Victim 2 and other children is a direct result of a conspiracy to conceal Sandusky's conduct and the decisions by top Penn State officials that facilitated and enabled his access to victims. We intend to file a civil lawsuit against Penn State University and others and to hold them accountable for the egregious and reckless conduct that facilitated the horrific abuse our client suffered."

The firm also has released two voicemails sent from Jerry Sandusky to Victim #2. The voicemails can be found on the firm's website.
