Scandal

Brooks' Lawyer: She's Not Guilty

Rebekah Brooks, the former News Corp. executive at the center of the phone-hacking scandal, was released on bail on Sunday. Police questioned her for nine hours, but her lawyer says they did not accuse her of any crimes. He insists she's not guilty, and demands that police give “an account of their actions” considering “the enormous reputational impact” of Brooks’s arrest. It's unclear if she will still appear for questioning by M.P.s alongside Rupert and James Murdoch Tuesday. Parliament was supposed to go on recess Wednesday, but Prime Minister David Cameron has declared an emergency session.
