Victims get access to evidence in newspaper’s phone hacking scandal

To date, 65 suits have been filed against News International

Scotland Yard has spent the past several months sharing evidence it seized from British newspaper publisher News International’s phone hacking scheme with hundreds of potential victims.

The scandal broke in July when Rupert Murdoch’s media company, News Corp., came under investigation for hacking into the phones of various celebrities, including politicians, actors and the royal family, among others. British authorities seized more than 11,000 pages of handwritten notes from News International, which is owned by News Corp., during its investigation of the media company’s misdeeds.
