UK lawyer to start News Corp action in U.S.


Happy Friday, Murdochs! A British lawyer is accusing you of breaking American law. What?!

But.. but... waitjustaminutethere... They say they knew nothing, saw nothing, heard nothing. Everyone knows powerful, heartless liars who run fake "news"/propaganda organizations would never do something as criminal as hack into phones and computers, especially those belonging to murdered schoolgirls or victims of horrific terrorist attacks.

LONDON, Sept 23 (Reuters) - A British lawyer acting for phone-hacking victims said on Friday he is planning to launch legal action in the United States against directors of the News of the World newspaper's parent company News Corp .

Mark Lewis, who represents the family in the high-profile case of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler, said he had held talks with lawyers in New York about seeking depositions potentially against all the company's directors, which he thought would include Rupert Murdoch and his son James. [...]

Lewis said he hoped legal papers would be sent off within the next week or so, with hearings possibly early next year.

"If there were any 9/11 victims then obviously it is an additional significance," he said.

Go get 'em, Mr. Lewis.
