Sienna Miller, the actress who is suing Rupert Murdoch’s UK news organization for hacking into her cell phone, has been offered £100,000 ($163,000) in compensation. News International has also offered to pay Miller’s legal costs after having recently publicly apologized for intercepting voicemails, it emerged this afternoon in London’s High Court. Miller is considering the Murdoch offer. The packed courtroom also heard that Jude Law is expected to issue legal proceedings shortly. The High Court was deciding how to proceed, wading through 9,200 pages of evidence in the News of the World phone-hacking scandal. Mr Justice Vos has decided four test cases for alleged victims of phone hacking by the News of the World should go ahead later this year. The cases could create framework for action from 91 alleged victims, which could cost Murdoch’s news empire millions of pounds in damages.
