Feinberg and university spokesman Dave La Torre are declining to comment.

Feinberg also ran victim compensation funds for victims of Agent Orange, the Virginia Tech massacre and the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

He's the author of a new book, "Who Gets What: Fair Compensation after Tragedy and Financial Upheaval," that details the processes he's used to evaluate and pay claims for major tragedies.
