HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- The NCAA wants the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to end litigation over the 2012 consent decree with Penn State over the school's handling of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.

Pennlive.com reported Thursday ( http://bit.ly/1zmSKlV ) the NCAA asks the justices in a recent court filing to order a lower court to stop the case, now set for trial in January. The NCAA argues that a Commonwealth Court judge shouldn't have kept the case alive. Pennlive.com says state Treasurer Rob McCord and state Sen. Jake Corman, plaintiffs in the case, want the high court to stay out of it.

The consent decree includes a $60 million fine and the temporary loss of scholarships and postseason eligibility.

Sandusky, a former assistant football coach, is in prison, convicted of sexual abuse of 10 boys.
