BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) Former FBI director Louis Freeh (LOO'-ee free) wants a judge from outside the State College area to handle the defamation lawsuit that former Penn State president Graham Spanier filed against him and his law firm.

Freeh's lawyers filed a motion Friday seeking an out-of-county judge in the litigation that accuses Freeh of scapegoating Spanier in a 2012 report commissioned by the university into how its officials handled the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal.

Freeh's filings suggest Dauphin County Judge Todd Hoover could handle the case, but court officials say Hoover has taken a medical leave of absence.

Hoover is presiding over the criminal case in Harrisburg against Spanier and his former top aides Gary Schultz and Tim Curley. A court system news release says other judges will hear his cases.
