A jury in the UK has returned verdicts on the two most high profile cases resulting from the phone hacking scandal that kicked off the Leveson Inquiry. Andy Coulson, the former Editor of News of the World who went from the paper to be the Director of Communications in the Prime Minister’s cabinet, was found guilty of conspiracy to intercept telecommunications. Two other verdicts remain pending for Coulson.

Rebekah Brooks, another former NoTW editor who also served as editor of The Sun and then CEO of News International was found not guilty along with her personal assistant.
