Andy Coulson is suing News Corporation, the parent company of News International. According to court filings, the lawsuit was filed yesterday.
A lawyer representing phone hacking victims has announced American lawyers intend to file a case against News Corp in the US. Speaking on Sky News' Boulton & Co, Mark Lewis said: "In timescales within the next week or so American lawyers will be issuing a case." Mr Lewis explained that the legal team will be arguing that, as the parent company of News International and the now-defunct News of the World, News Corp is ultimately responsible for the actions of its foreign subsidiaries.
On BBC News, Keith Vaz said the Metropolitan Police made “a mistake” in trying to force the Guardian to reveal its sources on phone hacking by using the Official Secrets Act. Utilising the Official Secrets Act "should ring alarm bells", he added.
According to the Daily Telegraph, News International paid Neil Wallis, former deputy editor of The News of the World, for 'crime exclusives' whilst he was working for Scotland Yard. It is claimed he was paid more than £25,000 by the company during his time at Scotland Yard.
