Joe Paterno's family has instructed its lawyer to form a "group of experts" to conduct a comprehensive review of the facts and conclusions presented in the Freeh report.
"We are dismayed by, and vehemently disagree with, some of the conclusions and assertions and the process by which they were developed by the Freeh Group," Wick Sollers, the lawyer for the Paterno family, said in a statement Monday. "Mr. Freeh presented his opinions and interpretations as if they were absolute facts. We believe numerous issues in the report, and his commentary, bear further review."
The Paterno family also said it will ask its team of experts and lawyers "to go beyond the report and identify additional information that should be analyzed." A review is also planned on Freeh's presentation of the facts at last Thursday's news conference in Philadelphia, Sollers said. In addition, the Paterno family has asked the Freeh Group to preserve all its records, notes and materials collected during its seven-month investigation of the Jerry Sandusky matter.
