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."
