Former NOtW Editors' Trial Begins

The phone hacking trial of former News of the World (NOtW) editors Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson is finally underway. According to the BBC, presiding jurist Mr. Justice Saunders cautioned the jury, telling it that there has been an "perhaps an unprecedented amount" of publicity about this case, but that the jury itself was to decide the case only on "the evidence heard in court."
