HACKGATE DAY 110: The queue to sue gets longer....

Heather Mills and her sister Fiona may well issue writs in the high court against Newscorp, it emerged yesterday. They are the latest in a lengthening line of high profile figures suing Rupert Murdoch’s group. Most of these (for example Wayne Rooney and his agent on earth Paul Stretford) followed briefings from Scotland Yard. The Slog understands that the briefings (judicial vagaries aside) more or less guarantee  conviction. The big question for Rooney is whether he’d rather spend the money on a good Brief or some ageing slappers.
