HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A Penn State trustee says the tentative settlements reached by the university so far with men who claim to have been sexually abused by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky total about $60 million.
Trustee Ted Brown told The Associated Press on Thursday that he was unsure of how many claims have been settled and how many remain in negotiations.
The trustees voted Friday to authorize members of a committee to approve settlements, without detailing how many accusers have settled, how many remain and how much money might be involved.
Brown says trustees were briefed on the dollar figures in private before the vote. School officials aren't commenting.
Sandusky is in prison after being convicted last year of 45 counts of child sexual abuse.
