Former Penn State President Graham Spanier is fighting a legal battle against Penn State to have access to emails related to the Jerry Sandusky child abuse case.  A judge will hear arguments on August 17th in a Centre County Courtroom.

Penn State is asking the court to dismiss the case, saying Spanier's complaint is about emails the Pennsylvania Attorney General has and won't release.

Spanier was President of the university for more than 16 years, before he was forced out last November.  

On Thursday morning, July 12, former FBI director Louis Freeh will release findings of his investigation into Penn State's handling of allegations that Sandusky molested a boy in the locker room shower on campus.  Spanier denies knowing anything about the incident.
