The now defunct tabloid News of the World apparently didn't limit its covert activities to phone hacking. The Guardian reports that the paper also hired an investigator to try to uncover information about attorneys representing the phone hacking victims, possibly in an attempt to derail lawsuits against it. Lawyers Mark Lewis and Charlotte Harris say they are contemplating invasion of privacy suits. The surveillance included observation of Mr. Lewis and Ms. Harris not only at work but during time with family and friends.
