News Corp's Hacking Scandal Hits U.s.

The telephone hacking scandal roiling Rupert Murdoch's British newspapers has spread to the U.S. following accusations by Angelina Jolie's stunt double that her phone was hacked by Murdoch's London Sun and the now-defunct News of the World in an apparent effort to learn private information about Jolie and Brad Pitt. The lawsuit filed by Eunice Huthart is the first filed against Murdoch's News Corp in the U.S. Huthart said that she had been unaware of the phone hacking until she was visited by British police, who informed her that her voicemail messages had been intercepted, apparently by Glenn Mulcaire, a private investigator who had been working for News International, the News Corp subsidiary that acted as the umbrella organization of Murdoch's British newspapers. The hacking allegedly took place while Jolie and Pitt were filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith. In the lawsuit Huthart said that she became distressed when she realized that messages she had received from Jolie and members of her family had strangely been deleted.
