Then, Davis told The Legal, when the administrators testified that Baldwin was their attorney, she did not think it was "appropriate" to interrupt the proceedings and clarify.
Reached Wednesday, Baldwin directed a request for comment to her attorney, Charles A. De Monaco of Fox Rothschild in Pittsburgh.
In an emailed statement, De Monaco said Baldwin's legal team had not 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."
After the grand jury proceeding, both Schultz and Curley were charged with lying to the grand jury and failure to report child sex abuse following their testimony.
Former university president Graham Spanier was charged in November with endangering the welfare of children, perjury and criminal conspiracy. Spanier was also charged with a misdemeanor obstruction of justice count and a related conspiracy count.
At that time, the state also brought additional charges against Curley and Schultz, charging each administrator with additional counts of endangering the welfare of children, along with new charges of misdemeanor obstruction of justice and related conspiracy counts.
All three men have maintained their innocence. Sandusky was convicted in June of 45 of 48 counts of child sex abuse and is currently serving a minimum of 30 years in state prison.
Thomas A. Sprague of Sprague & Sprague was unable to be reached for comment at press time late Wednesday on the praecipe for writ of summons.
