More NOTW phone hacking suits settled
December 18, 2012
More than a year after it first broke, the phone hacking scandal continues to play out in London, where Rupert Murdoch’s News International settled yet more lawsuits last week.
Another 22 settlements went on the books, though the amount being paid to the victims of the hacking was not disclosed.
News of the World was accused of illegally accessing the voicemail of hundreds of subjects of stories before shutting down in summer of 2011, in response to public outrage over the apparent hacking of a teenage murder victim’s voicemail.
Hugh Tomlinson, the lawyer for the claimants, said more suits are expected to be settled by year’s end.
The claimants this time included the ex-girlfriend of singer Robbie Williams and Colin Stagg, a man falsely accused of murder.
News Corp. has paid out hundreds of millions to the victims over the past 18 months.
