Heather Mills Wins Phone Hacking Case Against Murdoch
The former wife of Beatle Paul McCartney, Heather Mills, and 90 other people have won an apology and settlement from Rupert Murdoch’s News Group after a near decade-long battle over claims of phone hacking.
A public outcry over revelations that journalists on tabloid newspapers hacked into phones to find stories prompted Murdoch to shut down his News of the World newspaper in 2011.
Mills said the settlement from the company, which also publishes The Sun newspaper, stemmed from activity carried out between 1999 and 2010. The amount of the settlement was not disclosed.
