“I would describe my client’s reaction as relieved,” says Philadelphia attorney Tom Kline. “This has been a long road for him.”

Kline says his client, known as “Victim 5,” is the first to settle his claims against Penn State for an undisclosed amount. But the university reportedly approved payouts totaling $60 million.

“My client is fairly and adequately compensated,” said Kline. “Penn State now has an opportunity to recover a substantial amount that was paid to him as well as will be paid to others.”

Kline says “Victim 5” — who is now age 25 — was assaulted about six months after the 2001 shower incident involving assistant football coach Mike McQueary. Kline says he expects 25 or 26 of the claims against Penn State will settle.
