.........................

Actress and former lover of Prince Andrew Koo Stark will be the first to launch a phone-hacking claim against News Corporation in the US courts, it was claimed today.

The Met has informed the 55-year-old she may have been another victim of the News of the World and Ms Stark has instructed expert lawyer Mark Lewis, who won 3 million for Milly Dowler's family from the Murdoch empire.

Her advisers believe her voicemails were targeted while she was in America, taking the scandal across the Atlantic for the first time.

This could potentially be hugely damaging to Rupert Murdoch's reputation in the States.

1. Anyone know if this could go beyond a civil case in the US?

I would think that, if these allegations are proven, there could be legal implications here.

This is getting interesting.

3. The Government protects it's exclusive right to wiretap pretty diligently.

It'll be pretty hard for them to ignore if the facts are made public.

5. The discovery process will ruin Murdoch.

No question will be left un-asked.

And will have to be answered.

7. With all due respect (well, not really) who would want to hack her phone? I think the

world has pretty much forgotten about her.

8. Because she was dating Prince Andrew and Ruppert wanted dirt on the Prince... Duh!

Dirt on the Royal Family is a big deal over the Pond.. Their tabloids are crazier than ours most of the time. Look at how they hounded Princess Diana literally to death... and now her son's... Its not the actress they were probably after, its more than likely the Prince and some sort of scandal or dirt they could find out.
