Andy Coulson wins fee appeal

Andy Coulson, the former director of communications for David Cameron, yesterday won a legal battle against the owner of the Sun and the now-defunct News of the World, where Coulson was an editor. News Group Newspapers will now have to pay Coulson’s legal fees related to allegations of illegal activity after he successfully appealed a High Court ruling. Coulson is currently facing charges from more than 600 people related to phone hacking.
