An updated figure as of November 2012 was provided this week on a university website. It includes a $13 million price tag for board of trustees communications and the internal investigation into the scandal by former FBI director Louis Freeh.
Freeh's findings released last summer were the subject of renewed scrutiny this week after Joe Paterno's family released an extensive response conducted by its own experts.
Nearly $7.5 million is paying for university legal services or defense. About $4 million is for other legal defense fees including those covering three ex-school administrators facing criminal charges related to the scandal.
