Talks continue between PSU, abuse victims

HARRISBURG (AP) – Nearly a week after a lawyer disclosed the first settlement between Penn State and one of Jerry Sandusky’s sexual abuse victims, no other deals have been announced.

Lawyers involved in the talks said Friday they are still working with the university but none has a signed, final agreement. A lawyer brought in by Penn State to facilitate negotiations said earlier this week that he expected 24 more cases out of the total 31 to settle in the near future.

Williamsport lawyer Clifford Rieders said he was working to develop acceptable language about a provision the school wants to let it sue in the victims’ names.
