Angelina Jolie Sues News Corp., News International Ltd. and News Group Newspapers Ltd. over Alleged Phone Hacking
Jun 18 13
A woman who worked as a stunt double for Angelina Jolie sued Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. in Los Angeles on June 18, 2013, claiming she's a victim of a phone hacking scheme to obtain information about the actress. Huthart was unaware that she was a victim of the phone hackers until British police came to see her last year. The intrusion which removed messages from her cellphone caused distress in her family life and caused her to miss calls from Jolie. The lawsuit cited numerous references to the United Kingdom phone hacking scandal involving News Corp. companies and claims numerous grounds for damages. A monetary figure was not specified, but it asked that the companies be assessed damages based on the profits they made from the stories on Jolie. It also seeks punitive damages. The lawsuit also names as defendants News Corp. entities News International Ltd. and News Group Newspapers Ltd., and unidentified private investigators and journalists. The case is the first hacking-related lawsuit against News Corp. in the U.S. and is the culmination of a lengthy search for a plaintiff who would take on the company in a U.S. court room.

Nov 28 12
X Factor judge Louis Walsh has settled a EUR 500,000 defamation action against News Group Newspapers Limited in Ireland. The out-of-court deal was reached after the music mogul sued The Sun over a story last year based on a false allegation that he sexually assaulted a man in a Dublin night-spot. Unemployed dance teacher Leonard Watters was jailed for six months in July for wrongly accusing Walsh of groping him in a celebrity nightclub after a Westlife concert in April 2011. Eoin McCullough, senior counsel for News Group Newspapers, read a statement to the High Court in Dublin apologising to Walsh.
