Prince Harry wins phone hacking court case

Harry was joined by 100 other celebrities in suing Mirror Group Newspapers.

A U.K. judge on Friday issued a ruling in Prince Harry’s lawsuit against Mirror Group Newspapers, the publisher of The Daily Mirror, saying the Duke of Sussex’s phone was probably hacked “to a modest extent” by Mirror Group Newspapers.

The Duke of Sussex has been awarded £140,600 ($179, 658) after bringing a High Court phone hacking claim against Mirror Group Newspapers. The judge said there was “extensive” phone hacking by Mirror Group Newspapers from 2006 to 2011, “even to some extent” during the Leveson Inquiry into media standards.

“Today’s ruling is vindicating and affirming,” Harry said in a statement about the ruling. “I’ve been told that slaying dragons will get you burned. But in light of today’s victory and the importance of what is doing, what is needed for a free and honest press, it is a worthwhile price to pay. The mission continues.”

Harry, who now lives in the United States after stepping away from his royal duties three years ago, joined 100 other claimants, including the estate of the late George Michael, in suing Mirror Group Newspapers for alleged misuse of private information between 1991 and 2011, including alleged phone hacking and intercepting voicemails.

During the trial, which began in May, Harry’s legal team accused Mirror Group Newspapers of unlawfully gathering information on an “industrial scale.”

“It was a flood of illegality,” Harry’s attorney, David Sherborne, said in his opening statement in the trial, according to The Associated Press. “But worse, this flood was being approved by senior executives, managing editors and members of the board.”
