The Paterno family along with several Penn State trustees and former players filed suit against the NCAA in Centre County, Pennsylvania. Among the allegations are claims of breach of contract, intentional interference, injurious falsehood, defamation, and civil conspiracy.  Plaintiffs seek relief in the form of a declaratory judgment that the Consent Decree was unlawful and a permanent injunction from enforcing the Consent Decree, as well as other monetary damages.  Penn State is not a party to the suit.

The complaint can be found here.
