(Harrisburg) -- The man brought in by Penn State to negotiate civil claims with Jerry Sandusky's victims says talks are going well and he thinks they could produce settlements in the coming weeks.

Ken Feinberg has told The Associated Press the university is negotiating with lawyers for 28 people and that good progress is being made.

Feinberg says nobody has pulled out of the talks, 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.
