Paterno $1

November 17, 2011 by staff 

Paterno $1, Joe Paterno transferred full ownership of his house to his wife, leading some observers to speculate whether he did so to protect the asset in case of lawsuits.

The New York Times reported the former Penn State football coach transferred ownership of the home, valued at $594,484, to his wife, Sue, in July for $1 plus “love and affection.”

The couple had purchased the home near the Penn State campus in 1969 for $58,000 and owned it jointly before the transfer.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported the move fueled speculation Paterno transferred ownership to protect the asset in case of lawsuits related to the Penn State child sex abuse scandal.

But Wick Sollers, a lawyer representing Paterno, told the Times the move was “one element” of a “multiyear estate-planning program” that had nothing to do with the scandal.
