Penn State May Pay $60 Million to Settle Claims from Jerry Sandusky Victims


Pennsylvania State University reportedly will pay about $60 million to settle most of the personal injury claims filed by men who alleged they were sexually abused by Jerry Sandusky when they were children, says the Philadelphia Inquirer. The Wall Street Journal and the Legal Intelligencer reported the figure nearly a week after the university’s trustees announced tentative settlements had been reached with some of the former football coach’s victims.

It was not immediately clear how many cases are settled so far, anywhere from 10 to two dozen. Last Friday, Penn State’s board of trustees voted unanimously to authorize the university to settle the civil claims.
