HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- The NCAA has dropped Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett from its lawsuit challenging a state law that limits where $60 million in Penn State fine money can be spent.

It also dropped Auditor General Eugene DePasquale. It reached a deal Monday with lawyers for the officials saying they're not important to the case.

The lawsuit stems from a 2013 law requiring fines levied after the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal to be spent on Pennsylvania child abuse programs.

The dismissals leave state Treasurer Rob McCord and the Crime and Delinquency Commission's chairman as the lone defendants. McCord has defended the law.

Penn State accepted the fine two years ago as part of a consent decree.

Sandusky was a longtime assistant football coach. He was convicted of sexually abusing boys and is in prison but maintains his innocence.
