Oral arguments had been scheduled for Wednesday. But the Centre Daily Times reports ( http://bit.ly/10R3kRZ) U.S. District Judge Yvette Kane has postponed them until May 20, citing plans to attend the funeral for Chief U.S. District Judge Gary Lancaster.
Corbett sued the NCAA in January, arguing the sanctions violated federal antitrust laws. His lawsuit accuses the NCAA of exploiting the Sandusky case to increase the power of the organization's president and help some universities gain a competitive advantage.
The NCAA says its consent decree doesn't violate federal antitrust law.
