HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- A judge is delaying a trial on the legality of the NCAA's consent decree that punished Penn State for its handling of sex abuse complaints about former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Commonwealth Court Judge Anne Covey on Thursday said the case brought by Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman and state Treasurer Rob McCord will begin Feb. 17. It had been scheduled for Jan. 6.

The judge says she needs more time to resolve disagreements about which documents the NCAA must produce. She's also requiring the NCAA to give her the documents under seal so she can determine if Corman and McCord should get them.

Corman and McCord sued to enforce a state law requiring the consent decree's $60 million fine benefit Pennsylvania only.

Sandusky was convicted but denies molesting boys.
