|Lawsuits over alleged phone hacking by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation are to be filed in United States courts for the first time...In an email to msnbc.com Lewis confirmed reports that he expects to bring three lawsuits on behalf of clients and a fourth alleging wrongdoing at News Corp. He told the Daily Beast on Wednesday that the fourth lawsuit would center on 'perhaps the dirty tricks that might have been used in order to further the commercial aims for News Corporation.'
At least one of the cases involves allegations that the phone of a U.S. citizen was hacked, and Lewis said more U.S. victims of phone hacking were likely to emerge.
He told the Daily Beast: 'This is getting wider. It's not just the people who were A-list or celebrities, but people who were in their circles -- people who might call them or work with them.'
