Phone-hacking test cases could lead to deluge of celebrity claims
Cahal Milmo and Mark Hughes
"Lawyers are preparing to use a series of test cases involving politicians and celebrities to challenge Scotland Yard's handling of the phone-hacking scandal and pave the way to multiple six-figure compensation claims against the News of the World.
"Four public figures, including the actress Sienna Miller and the former Yard deputy assistant commissioner Brian Paddick, have begun proceedings for a judicial review of the police's conduct of the case after it emerged that officers failed to contact all of the 4,332 individuals listed by Glenn Mulcaire, the private investigator employed by the NOTW, who was jailed for illegally accessing voicemails. The former deputy prime minister Lord Prescott will decide this week whether to join the legal action."
