Hugh Grant’s Lawsuit Alleges Illegal Snooping by Newspaper

From an AP story by Brian Melley headlined “Hugh Grant’s lawsuit alleging illegal snooping by The Sun tabloid cleared for trial”:

A London court on Friday rejected an attempt by the publisher of The Sun tabloid to throw out a lawsuit by actor Hugh Grant alleging that journalists and investigators it hired illegally snooped on him.

Justice Timothy Fancourt said a trial will have to determine whether Rupert Murdoch’s News Group Newspapers carried out unlawful information gathering that included tapping Grant’s home phone, bugging his car and breaking into his home.
