Sarah Ferguson reaches settlement with News Corp.

Lawyers for Sarah Ferguson, the former wife of Prince Andrew, say that Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. has agreed to pay her for repeatedly intercepting her voicemail messages. The Duchess of York was one of a slew of phone hacking victims who settled on Friday with News Corp. over its campaign of illegal espionage by its British newspapers. The duchess split from Andrew in 1992. A statement from Ferguson’s lawyers said that the hacking dated back to 2000. News Corp. apologized and agreed to a ‘‘significant’’ but undisclosed settlement.
