HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Negotiations between Penn State and young men who claim they were abused by Jerry Sandusky are starting to bear fruit, with lawyers involved saying there will be more settlement announcements in the coming days.
The school's trustees have set aside some $60 million to pay claims, and on Monday a lawyer working for Penn State said the one settlement so far should be followed by 24 more this week.
Attorney Michael Rozen says pending agreements include most of the eight young men who testified last year against Sandusky. He's the school's former assistant football coach in prison for child molestation.
Penn State's saying little in response to an announcement by the lawyer for one of the eight that his case was fully settled and he expects payment within a month.
