FBI Now Investigating News International

Yesterday News International settled with a whopping 37 phone hacking victims, but only one of them — the dashing, scarf-wearing Jude Law — is causing them a big headache.

According to the Telegraph, Law said that News International admitted to hacking his voicemail for a story in 2003. The information contained in the article might have been accessed through conversations Law had with his assistant, who had recently landed at JFK airport. If Law’s phone was operating on a stateside network, the hacking could be punishable under U.S. law.

“We aware of the allegations surrounding this matter and are looking into it,” a FBI spokesperson told The Telegraph.
