Claimants: Penn St. slow on Sandusky settlements
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – Nearly three months after Penn State said it wanted to settle "privately, expeditiously and fairly" with the boys Jerry Sandusky sexually abused, lawyers for the victims from his criminal case and other potential claimants say the school has not followed up with concrete action.
The attorneys told The Associated Press in recent days that had very limited contact with the university and, if that continues, more lawsuits may follow the four now under way.
"I believe there has been a window of opportunity, which is closing, despite enormous patience by the lawyers who represent the victims," said Philadelphia attorney Tom Kline, who represents a young man who testified during Sandusky's criminal trial he was fondled in a school shower in 2001.
