LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A lawyer says e-mails are arriving from former students who may benefit from a nearly $113 million class-action settlement stemming from their enrollment in a Nevada-based helicopter flight school.

Lawyer Kevin Rooney said Wednesday that attorneys Andrew August in San Francisco and Christopher Casper in Tampa, Fla., will respond to former Silver State Helicopters students e-mails to settlementquestions@gmail.com.

But Rooney says they won't have specifics about the settlement with Student Loan Xpress until after a judge approves the agreement in coming weeks. The settlement announced Tuesday involves 12 states: California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Utah and Washington. Student Loan Xpress agreed to forgive some debts for students enrolled when Silver State Helicopters folded in February 2008 and sought bankruptcy liquidation.
