Although approximately 100 claims have been made against Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, an estimated 400 more are in the works.
The Wall Street Journal, itself a News Corp. publication, reported yesterday:
So far, claimants have filed roughly 110 lawsuits against the company related to illicit reporting tactics by the News of the World. The media company has settled more than half of those, including high-profile cases brought by singer Charlotte Church, actor Jude Law and comedian Steve Coogan. The settlement amounts have varied, with Ms. Church receiving one of the largest payouts, at £600,000 ($924,360).
But in a court hearing related to the continuing civil litigation on Friday, attorneys for both sides said they expect the total number of cases to continue growing.
...Jeremy Morgan, a lawyer for the victims, put the estimate of settled, unresolved or potential claims at 520.
This case is far from over.
Fox News and their parent company are still staying ahead of the law, but honestly- how much longer will that be lasting?
