Engelmyer and Paul Gagne, representing PMA, were cited in the following articles from philly.com, The Legal Intelligencer, and Law360 detailing the deposition testimony of  victims who said that employees and officials of Penn State, including head football coach Joe Paterno, were aware of their abuse by Sandusky.
