Legal-Bay Lawsuit Settlement Funding Reports Wrongful Termination Lawsuit Filing by Jay Paterno After Jerry Sandusky Football Sex Abuse Case

Case Funding Firm says Penn State case has shown a variety of work related lawsuit claims that company typically funds.

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today the filing of a $1MM wrongful termination, work related firing lawsuit after the University unfairly blamed former Penn State coaches Jay Paterno and Bill Kenney for actions related to the Jerry Sandusky matter. The former coaches' suit alleges Penn State for improper termination and civil conspiracy when they were not retained on the team staff. Jay Paterno, son of former coach Joe Paterno, defended his father in his recent book release "Paterno Legacy: Enduring Lessons from the Life and Death of My Father." The attention and media reactions from the newly released book and lawsuit has sparked Legal-Bay's focus on assisting victims of wrongful termination, wrongful firing, discrimination in the workplace, sexual harassment in the workplace, sexual abuse, and other large work related commercial litigation cases –such as qui tam or whistleblower suits- as Legal-Bay has been funding these types of litigations nationally.

Jay Paterno claims to be unfairly connected to the Jerry Sandusky Scandal, and defends his father's position in his book when his father told him "I didn't know that he'd done all that stuff, I had no idea. I just didn't know." By being a Paterno, Jay claims he has been deprived from his rights as being unable to land an interview or being denied jobs from a damaged reputation, due to links to the Sandusky Scandal. Legal-Bay is unsure if this would constitute a work related discrimination claim as well.    

After Jerry Sandusky was found guilty of 45 out of 48 charges, he was convicted of sexually assaulting multiple boys. Matt Sandusky came out earlier this month with his story on how his adopted father sexually abused him. Complex cases similar to these need legal guidance; and Legal-Bay's team of agents, lawyers, and underwriters are experienced and understand the confidentiality, sensitivity, and seriousness of these cases. Legal-Bay is avid in funding cases involving sexual abuse in the workplace, sexual assault, and sexual harassment as well as wrongful termination cases.

Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations commented, "Unfortunately what we have seen in all facets of this American tragedy is sexual abuse and harassment at the workplace or in a fiduciary capacity as Mr. Sandusky was in his sham role in the charity, alleged Wrongful Termination and discrimination against Joe Paterno's son. These 3 examples are just some of the typical claims that employees make against an employer, ironically they all came to the forefront in the Penn State Case."
