Jordan v. Pa. State Univ.

Pennsylvania Superior Court

May 9, 2022

A former PSU football player sued the school and its medical center following surgery to repair an injury suffered during a practice for a bowl game. The trial court sustained the defendants’ preliminary objections and dismissed the action, denied his request for recusal, and held him in contempt. The former athlete fared no better before the Pennsylvania Superior Court. The Court affirmed. As one would expect in a case where the appellant filed a 68-page pro se brief that the Court described as “somewhat befuddling and convoluted,” the opinion touches on the myriad ways the appellant failed to preserve correctly and present his claims of error. Had this student-athlete attended the prestigious University of Wisconsin-Madison, he would be in a better position to handle this legal matter.*
