News Corp. says it has terminated legal payments to Glenn Mulcaire, the private investigator implicated in the phone hacking scandal roiling Britain's establishment.
The termination of the payments Wednesday came one day after media baron Rupert Murdoch told lawmakers that he would try to find a way to stop the payments "provided it is not in breach of a legal contract."
Mulcaire's hiring of a high-flying defense lawyer has long led many to suspect that the company was footing his legal bills, possibly in a bid to buy the convicted criminal's silence.
