(the New York Times reports that Joe Paterno, former coach of Pennsylvania State University football team who was fired amid controversy surrounding former assistant coach and associated cover-up, on July 21, 2011, transferred family home worth $594,484.40 that was held in joint tenancy with wife to her for $1 plus "love and affection"; transfer appears to have been made with intent to shield transferor from potential creditors, but transferor's lawyers claim transfer part of overall "multiyear estate planning program").
