Judith Regan Makes Sensational Allegations in Lawsuit Against NewsCorp

Judith Regan, the publisher whose career ended in the wake of the turmoil over the O. J. Simpson "If I Did It" manuscript, is suing NewsCorp for defamation. In papers filed, she says, among other things, that at least one employee at NewsCorp wanted to protect Rupert Murdoch ally Rudolph Guiliani and his friend Bernard Kerik, with whom she had had an affair, and in order to do that, was willing to ask her to lie about the affair. The New York Times' Russ Buettner details this and other Regan claims in an article in today's issue of the paper. Ms. Regan is suing for one hundred million dollars, according to the Associated Press.
