PSU lawyers: 'Good faith' settlement talks begin
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - October 26, 2012 (WPVI) -- The attorneys helping Penn State with talks over potential settlements with the roughly two dozen men who accuse ex-assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky of sexual abuse say they've started "good faith" negotiations with all the accusers.
Attorneys Kenneth Feinberg and Michael Rozen also said Friday that the school has not set aside a certain amount of money for potential settlements, and left open the possibility the process could stretch beyond the end of the year. The school had initially said last month it hoped to resolve claims by year's end.
Feinberg said cases would be evaluated individually.
The attorneys made their remarks at a trustees meeting specifically called to discuss potential settlements. Trustees voted to give a board subcommittee the authority to approve possible settlements on behalf of the university.
