Lifting the lid on ‘hackgate’

first_img Gill Phillips is director of editorial legal services at Guardian News & Media Ltd As we all now know, News International last month settled 37 of the civil claims brought against News Group Newspapers (NGN), the publisher of the now defunct News of the World (NoW). The total declared damages (not including costs) was £645,000, although the actual figure is certain to be higher as a number of people have not revealed the details of their settlements. These follow a number of earlier high-profile settlements with celebrities such as Sienna Miller, Andy Gray and Kelly Hoppen. In October, Milly Dowler’s family accepted £2m in compensation over revelations that their daughter’s phone was hacked by the NoW. What is stunning about last month’s High Court proceedings is the sheer breadth and impact of hacking on its victims. It seems, by all accounts, to have been a systemic approach to doing journalism at the newspaper over a long period. In June 2008, after the convictions of Glenn Mulcaire and Clive Goodman in 2007, NGN settled, on confidential terms, a number of civil claims for breach of privacy, with large sums being paid to Gordon Taylor and Max Clifford. The NoW said at the time: ‘From our own investigation, but more importantly that of the police, we can state with confidence that, apart from the matters referred to above, there is not and never has been evidence to support allegations that News of the World journalists have accessed the voicemails of any individual.’ The Press Complaints Commission also investigated and concluded that phone hacking was a minority activity, confined to one rogue reporter, and that the practice had been thoroughly investigated and stamped out. Continuing the legal paper trail, in 2009 a group of claimants issued proceedings against NGN. In early 2010, applications for disclosure were made in the case of Sienna Miller, forcing NGN to reveal evidence, which referred to another senior journalist on the NoW. The cat was out of the bag. In April 2011, Mr Justice Vos – who presided at last month­’s hearing – decided that all the claims should be heard together with certain lead claims being treated as test cases. NGN continued to defend almost all the claims. By October 2011, more than 60 claims had been issued and 12 firms of solicitors were working together as a coordinated group. This group obtained a number of crucial disclosure orders from the court. As a result, documents relating to the nature and scale of the alleged conspiracy, cover-up and destruction of evidence (including email archives) by NGN came to light. Last month’s announcements have been carefully worded. NGN agreed to compensation being assessed ‘as if’ senior employees and directors of NGN knew about the wrongdoing and sought to conceal it by deliberately deceiving investigators and destroying evidence. NGN made no formal admissions of guilt. The sums paid are higher than the usual range of compensation payments for misuse of private information, reflecting the aggravating features in these cases and the strong public revulsion they engendered. The statements were made by NGN, as the first defendant, and not by Mulcaire, who has said that he was not involved in agreeing to these statements. While this might be the end for a considerable number of the victims, it is in reality only the tip of the iceberg. While the High Court was told that a number of other victims are also close to settling, some, including singer Charlotte Church, Liberal Democrat MP Simon Hughes and sports agent Sky Andrew are still intending to pursue their actions to trial, due to start on 13 February. The trial is expected to give guidance on damages for current and future lawsuits and out-of-court settlements. The ongoing police investigations will continue. The Leveson Inquiry, currently engaged in an analysis of the culture, practices and ethics of the media, still has to look at the relationship between the press and the police, and the press and politicians. What Leveson has heard to date has turned the heat up on demands for reform of the PCC, not least when it comes to policing the conduct of journalists. There is an emerging consensus for reform, with a reshaped PCC, independent of the press and government, and recognised by statute. The idea of the reformed body acting as a tribunal to adjudicate in the first instance on defamation and privacy claims is also gaining ground, and has been floated by the commission’s new chairman, Lord Hunt of Wirral. There is, indeed, much more of this story to come.last_img read more

It’s just The Facts of Life: ‘Dancing with the Stars’ sends Nancy McKeon home while Juan Pablo gets first 10s of the season

first_imgABC/Lou Rocco(LOS ANGELES) — Monday night, Dancing with the Stars invited its contestants to recall their Most Memorable Year — but the night ended up being one that Nancy McKeon would probably rather forget.The former The Facts of Life star and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy were sent home after scoring 22/30 for an emotional rumba inspired by the year 2006, the year Nancy and her husband completed their family by welcoming their second daughter. The other couple in jeopardy, but eventually deemed safe, was R&B singer Tinashe and her partner Brandon Armstrong, despite the fact that they’ve consistently been among the high scorers so far this season.Monday night also saw the first 10s — and the first perfect score — of the season. Argentinian actor Juan Pablo Di Pace and his partner Cheryl Burke blew the judges away with a samba inspired by the year 1999, when Juan Pablo left Argentina to make it as an actor.Judge Bruno Tonioli called it the best samba he’d seen in 27 seasons, while Carrie Ann Inaba called it “off the charts!” Judge Len Goodman gave them a standing ovation — and a 10, and so did Bruno and Carrie Ann, for the season’s first 30/30.And as usual, the Most Memorable Year theme led to some tear-jerking stories from the contestants. Among them:Gymnast Mary Lou Retton recalled how, in 1984, she won the gold medal at the Olympics, despite having secretly undergone knee surgery just six weeks before the event.Country radio personality Bobby Bones recalled the year 1998, when he graduated from high school, because he was the first in his family ever to do so. His mother had him at age 15, struggled with addiction, and then died in her 40s as a result of drugs and alcohol.Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch recalled that before she was cast as Luna Lovegood in the Potter films, she had an eating disorder and was frequently hospitalized. She reached out to her favorite author —  J.K. Rowling — and they became pen pals, which she said made her want to continue living. Strangely, her relationship with Rowling had nothing to do with her getting the part of Luna.Former NFL star DeMarcus Ware cried as he recalled how he and his wife lost three pregnancies before adopting a baby girl, and then getting pregnant and having a son two years later. DeMarcus recalled that during his most memorable year 2016 — the year he won the Super Bowl — what meant the most to him was that his wife and two kids were there in the stands cheering him on. Here are the scores:High Score:Juan Pablo Di Pace, Fuller House & Mamma Mia! actor, with Cheryl Burke 30/30Tied in second place:Tinashe, R&B singer, with Brandon Armstrong, 27/30Evanna Lynch, Harry Potter films star, with Keo Motsepe, 27/30Milo Manheim, Disney Channel star, with Witney Carson, 27/30DeMarcus Ware, former NFL star, with Lindsay Arnold, 26/30Alexis Ren, Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, with Alan Bersten, 26/30Mary Lou Retton, former Olympic gymnast, with Sasha Farber, 24/30Bobby Bones, country radio personality, with Sharna Burgess, 23/30John Schneider, Dukes of Hazzard star, with Emma Slater, 21/30Lowest score:Joe Amabile, The Bachelorette contestant, with Jenna Johnson, 18/30Dancing with the Stars returns next Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

first_imgAustralia’s World Cup Teams arrived in Stellenbosch South Africa ahead of the sixth World Cup of Touch to be played in the South African province from 17 – 21 January 2007.The three Open Teams arrived in Stellenbosch after a travel itinerary that included an overnight stay in Perth followed by an 11-hour flight to Johannesburg with a bumpy entry in driving rain and lightning.A 2-hour flight to Cape Town was followed up by a 45-minute bus drive to the protea hotel in Stellenbosch where all seven teams will take up residence for the next 11 days.Some very weary travelers arrived at 10.30pm local time to collapse into their beds and begin the process of acclimatizing to their new surrounds.After a sumptuous breakfast, set against a beautiful backdrop of the famed Stellenbosch Mountains and wine district, the three teams set off for their first training run on South African soil to blow out the travel cobwebs and begin the last phases of physical work required to top off their pre-tournament preparations. After training, all three teams attended a traditional South African theme park ‘Boya’ at nearby Spier organized by former South African native, and Australian Team Medico Doctor Martin Jaffe.As well as the traditional South African food and entertainment on offer, the Aussie Teams engaged in tours of the Cheetah Park at Spier and local arts and craft displays.The highlights for the Aussie teams included Australian Open Mixed Captain Tony Eltakchi and Men’s Open player Anthony Ziade borrowing some traditional South African garb and entertaining all and sundry with an impromptu dancing display with a few of the locals.When ‘Tash’ incited the locals to chant, “The roof is on fire” some looked skyward to the ceiling, a little panicked, and then relieved to discover that the roof was, in fact, NOT on fire after all.Elsewhere Jason Stanton and Kylie ‘Warnie’ Hilder, were enlisting Stellenbosch locals to help construct human pyramids, and Rebecca Tavo jammed on the Bongos with African native performers.Mixed speedster Brad ‘BJ’ Holden was sizing himself up against Adult Cheetah “Hemmingway” in the Cheetah enclosures for a “fast and the furious” sprint off – but Hemmingway may have the little guy’s measure with a 0 – 80 km hour acceleration in just three seconds.The baby cheetah cubs proved irresistible to most of the girls, and a high percentage of the boys, who fell in love with the gorgeous endangered babies.All three Open teams also visited the famed Table Mountain over the last two days and enjoyed the view from one of the World’s truly great Mountain peaks.A comprehensive tour of Table Mountain provided many memorable photo opportunities for the group, though Australian Women’s Open player Peta Rogerson was not impressed with her little sister Hayley, who on every occasion possible sent Peta’s heart racing with her photo poses as close to the edge of the mountain as possible.  “Hayley, stick to the trail!” was uttered in vain many times by the concerned elder sibling who admits to bouts of giddiness on an escalator. Tony Eltakchi again borrowed an outfit from a worker and a walkie-talkie to entertain the crowd.Kristy Judd, Steve Roberts, and Kelly Woods provided some insightful questions and comments to keep our knowledgeable guide Rainer on her toes and were very good at yelling “View!” to alert onlookers of a clearing of the mist to glimpse better views of the beautiful Capetown coastline. Light Team trainings will continue Tuesday with pockets of sight seeing for some as teams look to rest and focus with first games commencing on Wednesday.The Australian Senior Teams arrived after a wicked travel schedule that saw plane delays ensure connecting flights were not able to be met, forcing some teams into long stays in airports and some players to stay overnight in Johannesburg before flying to Cape town then bussing onto Stellenbosch this morning.After an exhaustive and somewhat trying battle to reach their destination, all Australian representatives finally arrived safe and sound in Stellenbosch this morning. Most senior teams trained lightly today and relaxed in the afternoon, with many team members acclimatizing and fending off the effects of jet lag after their odyssey to get to the World Cup.In brighter news, all World Cup Teams and Touch Football Australia would like to pass on their congratulations to popular Australian Women’s Open player Dominique Maher on her marriage to Ryan Barlow, Dom married her beau before close family and friends at Cronulla on Saturday before postponing her honeymoon to board a plane for Johannesburg to take up her position in the Australian Women’s Team for the World Cup.Dominique is the third of the famed Maher clan to wear the green and gold at World Cup level, following in the footsteps of her elder sisters ATA Hall of Fame member and former Australian Women’s Captain Katrina, and former Australian Women’s Open Vice Captain Gabrielle. Teams will put the finishing touches to preparations tomorrow with training sessions, tactical sessions, and relaxation periods for the players to prepare their minds and bodies for the World Cup competition that begins in earnest on Wednesday with all seven Australian teams in action on day one.last_img read more

Unfair beer markup Judge orders Alberta to pay outofprovince breweries 2M

first_imgCALGARY – A judge has ruled the Alberta government’s markup on craft beer is unconstitutional and has awarded two breweries in Ontario and Saskatchewan more than $2 million.Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Gillian Marriott said in a written decision that the markup is discriminatory.It “is intended to operate simultaneously with the grant program to discriminate between craft brewers and craft beer on the basis of provincial origin, creating a trade barrier relating to a provincial boundary,” she said.Great Western Brewing Co. of Saskatoon is to receive the majority of the restitution — $1.9 million — while Toronto-based Steam Whistle Brewing is entitled to nearly $164,000.The Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission, sole wholesaler of alcohol in Alberta, imposed the markup in 2015 with a revamped version the following year.Lawyers for Great Western and Steam Whistle argued that Alberta’s markup is basically a tax. The government charges all small breweries $1.25 per litre sold, but returns much of that to Alberta producers as a grant.The province argued it has the right to support its small breweries.Last week, an appeal panel under the Agreement on Internal Trade upheld an earlier decision that provincial subsidies to assist smaller Alberta craft brewers are unfair and violate interprovincial free-trade rules.Finance Minister Joe Ceci said at the time the province would be changing the program in a way that continues to support Alberta brewers.He said Wednesday the government will be looking at the latest court ruling and deciding whether or not to appeal.“In the meantime, I want small brewers and liquor manufacturers in this province to know that we’ll continue to have their backs,” he said.He added brewers in Alberta have told him they face unfair barriers in other provinces — tasting panels, expensive applications and limited shelf space — and he’s looking at whether to challenge those practices as discriminatory.last_img read more
