A Penn State student who sits on the university's board of trustees is dropping out of a lawsuit against the NCAA over sanctions imposed because of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

In a story published Tuesday in the Centre Daily Times, student trustee Peter Khoury claims he was threatened with removal from a board committee that is searching for a new university president if he did not withdraw.
 
The 23-year-old Allentown resident isn't disclosing specifics but says court papers seeking his withdrawal will be filed soon.

Board spokesman David LaTorre is declining to discuss Khoury's withdrawal or the alleged threat.

In its lawsuit, the Paterno family is seeking to overturn sanctions that include a four-year bowl ban and a $60 million fine against the university.
