HARRISBURG — Penn State's negotiator for civil claims involving former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky says the school is in talks with 28 people who have brought claims, 18 more than were connected to his criminal case.

Ken Feinberg told The Associated Press on Friday that the talks could produce settlements in coming weeks. Feinberg says nobody has pulled out of the negotiations, and he thinks they will be successful in the near future.

Penn State announced in September it was bringing in Feinberg, who helped resolve claims from the Sept. 11 terror attacks, the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the Virginia Tech massacre.

Sandusky, the school's former assistant football coach, is pursuing appeals after being convicted of sexual abuse of 10 boys.
