Victims of alleged phone hacking testified about their experiences. Attorney Graham Shear spoke about the legal process of libel cases, invasion of privacy and phone-hacking cases, and claimed British press had lost their “moral compass.”

Prime Minister David Cameron appointed Lord Justice Leveson on July 13, 2011, to investigate the role of the press and police in the phone-hacking scandal surrounding the defunct British newspaper News of the World. The hearings were divided into four modules, or phases: 1) the relationship between the press and the public, and phone-hacking and other potentially illegal acts 2) relationships between the press and police 3) the relationship between press and politicians 4) recommendations for improved policy and regulation. close
