|A former News Of The World reporter, who is a central figure in the phone hacking scandal, is claiming whistleblower status in a wrongful termination lawsuit against the defunct tabloid's parent company News International. The Guardian reports that Neville Thurlbeck, the former chief reporter for the now-defunct paper, claims that he was unfairly fired by News International. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Friday before an employment tribunal. Thurlbeck, who was arrested in April on charges related to the phone hacking scandal, was still on the NI payroll until fairly recently, though it's unclear when exactly he was fired.|
