Report: Penn State to spend $60 million to settle some claims

The SportsXchange

Penn State University's board of trustees authorized roughly $60 million in payments to settle most of the abuse claims brought forth

during the Jerry Sandusky trial, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

The settlement covers about 25 of the approximately 30 claims made by men who say they were abused by Sandusky, a former Nittany Lions

assistant coach. The fate of the remaining claims is unclear, the report said, including at least one civil lawsuit against the school.

Convicted last year, Sandusky is serving a 30-to-60-year prison sentence for sexually abusing 10 boys over more than a decade. The scandal brought down the university and destroyed the legacy of longtime head coach Joe Paterno, who was fired as a result, and died in January 2012.
