Murdoch company settles dozens of phone hacking suits

Rupert Murdoch's British newspaper publisher News International settled 144 lawsuits over phone hacking on Friday.

High Court officials did not announce the names the people involved or the amount of the settlements.

Seven cases were not settled and will go to trial in June.

Friday's settlements were the second group of suits to be settled by News International after a widespread scandal around the hacking of
celebrities, politicians, victims of crime and others by people working for Murdoch tabloids.

    This is worthy of emulation.
    Hopeful that hackers are not planning another strategy.
