The News of the World and Sienna Miller have settled that phone hacking case. The tabloid is paying 100,000 pounds in damages for harassment and invasion of privacy and has apologized. Ms. Miller also has the opportunity to pursue legal redress should any other information obtained via the hacking activities be disclosed in future.
Meanwhile, the list of phone hacking targets may grow by at least two extremely high-profile names, according to the Guardian: former Prime Minister Tony Blair and former royal girlfriend and now royal wife Kate Middleton. The hacker is reported to have been Jonathan Rees, when he worked at the News of the World during the mid-2000s.
