    How about a down payment of a few million to every claimant with some other form of ADR (alternative dispute resolution) to follow on the final figure? I hope at least one plaintiff refuses to accept either confidentiality or settlement and forces the case to a public trial by jury. That's the only way to achieve closure for the victims and render justice to the men at Penn State who allowed this savagery to recur.

    This is probably going to be the toughest issue Mr. Feinberg is going to have to deal with. Sexual abuse isn't quantifiable like the BP claims or even the 9/11 attacks. There was some monetary value at least you can start from. Sexual abuse cause physical, mental and emotional abuse and there is no number that can fix that. This is going to be a long and hard settlement for both parties.
