Pennsylvania State University was sued by one of the victims of sex abuse by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky and accused of hiding what it knew about the threat he posed to children.

The plaintiff, known as “Victim 6,” filed the lawsuit yesterday in federal court in Philadelphia against the university, Sandusky and the youth charity he founded. The victim, who was 11 years old when the abuse took place in May 1998, accused the school and charity of negligence, conspiracy and intentional infliction of emotion distress.
