Penn State Receives First Round of Demands From Plaintiffs Seeking Damages
Penn State counsel Ken Feinberg delivered the first round of demands from plaintiffs alleging abuse by Jerry Sandusky to Penn State officials Friday.
Feinberg said he met with Penn State officials in Philadelphia where he delivered about 15 demands from individuals who have filed complaints against the university and he said he expects to hear from the remaining plaintiffs sometime soon.
In the meantime, Penn State has to respond to the demands. Penn State spokesman Dave La Torre said the university has no comment at this time.
"From the very beginning, [Penn State] said [it] would like to complete this facilitation process as soon as [it] can. They're eager to try and resolve these claims," Feinberg said.
In the year since the grand jury indictment revealed Jerry Sandusky's crimes, Penn State has spent more than $25 million dealing with the fallout on public relations, legal fees and consultants.
