'Adult film' star Koo Stark to sue Murdoch's US-based News Corp over phone-hacking

London, Apr 28 (ANI): Duke of York Prince Andrew's former girlfriend Koo Stark is set to launch legal action in the US against Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, saying she was a victim of phone hacking at the News of the World.

Stark is the first person to be confirmed as considering legal action against News Corp in the US over the hacking scandal, which has so far has been largely confined to the UK.

According to The Daily Mail, the American actress claimed that her phone was hacked while she was on US soil.

Stark is a client of Mark Lewis, the solicitor representing many celebrities who have won damages against Murdoch's now defunct British tabloid.

Stark dated Prince Andrew after his return from the Falklands War in the early 1980s, and marriage seemed on the cards.

But when it emerged that Stark had acted in a mildly erotic film some years earlier, the romance ended.

Meanwhile, the report said Lewis is representing at least two other clients who may file civil lawsuits in the US over alleged phone-hacking by New York-based News Corp.

Earlier this month, he said one of the alleged victims was connected to Princess Diana and the royal household, while a second has links to the England football team. (ANI)
