News Corp.’s Times Newspaper Sued in U.K. for E-Mail Hacking

News Corp.’s Times newspaper in London, which escaped the phone-hacking and bribery scandals at Rupert Murdoch’s other U.K. titles, was sued by a former police blogger for hacking into his e-mail account in 2009.

The lawsuit by detective Richard Horton, who wrote an unauthorized, anonymous blog about police work that gained national media attention, was filed April 11 in London. The Times in January admitted the hacking, which allowed it to reveal Horton’s identity three years ago.
