Angelina Jolie Sues News Corp., News International Ltd. and News Group Newspapers Ltd. over Alleged Phone Hacking

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.
