STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State has said it wanted to settle "privately, expeditiously and fairly" with the boys Jerry Sandusky sexually abused, but lawyers for the victims tell The Associated Press they have had very limited contact from the school.

The lawyers, who together represent at least 20 people in the matter, are raising the prospect that more lawsuits may follow the four now under way.

The plaintiff's lawyers say they won't wait indefinitely for the university to propose a settlement process stemming from Sandusky's conviction in June on 45 counts of sexual abuse of 10 boys. Sandusky awaits sentencing.

A university spokesman says the school has had "multiple conversations" with the plaintiffs' lawyers. But the school isn't offering specifics about the process, how much money might be made available or eligibility standards.
