Alleged sexual assault victims considering lawsuit against Penn State

Reports indicate victims are working with legal teams to prep civil suit against the school

As the dust begins to settle on the tumultuous and disturbing events that came to light in the past week in State College, Pa., news outlets today are reporting that the alleged sexual assault victims of former Pennsylvania State University defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky are preparing to file civil lawsuits against the school. The alleged victims are reportedly seeking damages from the university over the administrators’ failure to take action against the coach who purportedly was a known sexual predator.

A grand jury filing last week listed eight potential victims, with at least one more believed to have come forward since then. A source told The Daily Beast that phone lines set up for abuse victims and tips have been flooded with calls.
