London's High Court has dismissed Prince Harry's attempt to include media mogul Rupert Murdoch and broadcaster Piers Morgan in a phone hacking lawsuit. Harry, along with over 40 other plaintiffs, is suing News Group Newspapers (NGN), a US company owned by Murdoch. The lawsuit alleges phone hacking and illegal news gathering by NGN. The plaintiffs had hoped to add new claims against Murdoch and Morgan, who were associated with the now-defunct NGN newspaper News of the World in the mid-1990s.
