Penn State plans to bring in the man who ran the September 11 victim fund and other major compensation programs as it attempts to settle claims by Jerry Sandusky's child molestation victims.
Plaintiff's attorney Jeff Anderson says a lawyer for the university notified him in recent days that it will be aided by lawyer Ken Feinberg.
Feinberg and university spokesman Dave La Torre are declining to comment.
Feinberg also ran victim compensation funds for victims of Agent Orange, the Virginia Tech massacre and the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
He's the author of a new book, "Who Gets What: Fair Compensation after Tragedy and Financial Upheaval," that details the processes he's used to evaluate and pay claims for major tragedies.
