(AP) Penn State's lawyers are asking a judge to throw out a whistleblower and defamation lawsuit filed by a former assistant football coach who testified he saw Jerry Sandusky attack a boy in a school shower more than a decade ago.


The university made a court filing Tuesday that says Mike McQueary's lawsuit is too vague and doesn't meet legal standards to support claims of defamation and misrepresentation.


McQueary is suing the university for millions of dollars, saying the president made him a scapegoat after Sandusky, a retired assistant football coach, was arrested.


The school's lawyers say it's not enough for McQueary to have been embarrassed or annoyed. The filing says he also has to show he suffered harm that has grievously fractured his standing in the community of respectable society.
