Penn St. settlement demands

PENN STATE HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The lawyer brought in by Penn State to help settle Jerry Sandusky-related claims said he recently gave university officials monetary settlement offers from most of the people asserting they were molested by the former assistant football coach.

Attorney Ken Feinberg told The Associated Press that he delivered the demands to Penn State administrators, lawyers and members of the board of trustees during a meeting Friday in Philadelphia.

"The next step is Penn State — we'll see how Penn State responds in the next few weeks," Feinberg said.

Asked about the meeting, a university spokesman declined to comment. Reactions by lawyers for the claimants ranged from hopefulness to no comment. None would say what dollar figure he or she is seeking.
