A former Penn State administrator facing criminal charges related to the Jerry Sandusky sex-abuse scandal has filed a praecipe for writ of summons against the university’s former general counsel, Cynthia Baldwin, indicating he intends to sue her for legal malpractice.

In an emailed statement, Charles A De Monaco, who is represented Baldwin, said that her legal team had not yet received the court papers filed by Schultz as of press time Wednesday. However, the attorney said Baldwin denies any wrongdoing.

“Cynthia Baldwin, as evidenced by her distinguished career and her impeccable reputation, is a person of the highest integrity,” the statement said. “The suggestion by anyone that Ms. Baldwin did not fulfill her ethical and professional duties to the Pennsylvania State University and its agents and administrators is untrue. Cynthia Baldwin knows the importance of due process and how legal issues need to play out in courts of law and not in the media. As a result, it is not her intent to publicly address the issuance of a writ or legal issues that are properly before the courts.”
