Although approximately 100 claims have been made against Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, an estimated 400 more are in the works.
The Wall Street Journal, itself a News Corp. publication, reported yesterday:
So far, claimants have filed roughly 110 lawsuits against the company related to illicit reporting tactics by the News of the World. The media company has settled more than half of those, including high-profile cases brought by singer Charlotte Church, actor Jude Law and comedian Steve Coogan. The settlement amounts have varied, with Ms. Church receiving one of the largest payouts, at £600,000 ($924,360).
