Report News Corp Nears Big Settlement With U.k. Singer

The manager of British singer Charlotte Church has denied a Financial Times report that she has settled her invasion-of-privacy lawsuit against News International, the parent of the now-defunct News of the World for £500,000 (about $750,000). Of six "test" cases related to the NoW 's voicemail hacking scandal due to go to trial on Monday, Church's is the only one that has not been settled out of court. In a terse interview with today's (Wednesday) Guardian newspaper, John Vernile, Church's manager, said that he has been trying to reach a resolution with News International. "We are definitely not resolved," he said, "It's not resolved until it's resolved. I can't say anything more." Church has claimed that 33 articles appearing in the NoW were based on facts obtained through phone hacking. Critics of News International, a unit of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, had hoped that the initial cases would produce evidence pointing to higher-up figures in the organization who had authorized the hacking and funded it.
