The scathing investigative report regarding the handling of child sex abuse at Pennsylvania State University by Gerald A. Sandusky supplies plaintiffs’ attorneys with a “roadmap of everything that went wrong.”

Even before Sandusky went before a jury, Penn State and its primary General Liability insurer, Pennsylvania Manufacturer’s Association Insurance Co. (PMA), filed lawsuits against each other over legal expenses. PMA says it has no duty to defend.

As pointed out in a column by Reitz, Penn State and United Educators—reportedly the writer of the university’s Educators Legal Liability coverage—are currently not waged in litigation.
