LONDON — A lawyer for victims of phone hacking by the News of the World says a new conspiracy uncovered by British investigators has hundreds of potential victims.
Hugh Tomlinson made the announcement Monday at Britain's High Court during legal arguments related to the lawsuits against News of the World publisher News International.
Tomlinson did not go into much detail, but hundreds of extra victims could translate into millions of extra pounds in damages for the UK newspaper company.
The phone hacking scandal has greatly damaged the reputation of the British tabloid press, which has been found to have hacked into the voicemails of celebrities, politicians, crime victims and others.
Rupert Murdoch's company has already paid millions of pounds in settlements.
