Edward Hayes LLP successfully settles its phone hacking claims with News International. The owner of the News of the World has recently settled 130 claims by individuals such as Cherie Blair, Hugh Grant, David Beckham’s father and actor James Nesbitt.
High Court judge Mr Justice Vos has been managing the second batch of claims against News International with a view to trying some lead cases in June this year. However, News International is believed to prefer settling the claims rather than going to court and having the details discussed in front of the media and public.
