More phone hacking lawsuits have been filed against the Sun‘s and Daily Mirror‘s publishers.
The latest suits include those by James Hewitt, who had an affair with Princess Diana; and Paul Burell, who was her butler, according to the Guardian. Both are suing the Daily Mirror‘s publisher.
The Sun‘s publisher, News UK, is being sued by, according to Byline:
- the family of a former sports manager and fundraiser, the late Sir Bobby Robson;
- singer Cheryl Tweedy;
- former politician Sir Simon Hughes;
- actors Sienna Miller; Gary Lucy; Michelle Collins; and Richard Fleeshman;
- reality show participants Rebecca Loos and Imogen Thomas.
“Hughes and Miller’s claims against the publisher are notable because they have both already successfully sued the publisher for phone hacking at the News of the World, suggesting they may have further claims against the company’s news outlets,” the Guardian noted.
A spokesperson for the Mirror declined to comment to iMediaEthics. iMediaEthics has written to News UK, which publishes the Sun.
