LEGAL News Corp.'s U.K. publishing unit was sued by at least 43 more victims of phone hacking by its now-defunct News of the World tabloid, including Doctor Who actor Christopher Eccleston and English model Katie Price.

The lawsuits were filed Sept. 14 in London and made public Monday, court records show. The unit, News International, was sued last week by about three dozen other victims to meet a deadline for joining a group civil trial scheduled to begin sometime after May 1.

With the new cases, more than 130 people have sued since February. Victims are joining the case after being told by police that details about them were found among the notes of Glenn Mulcaire, the tabloid's former private investigator who was jailed for phone hacking in 2007.

The tabloid targeted some of the best-known celebrities, including U.S. actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and England soccer player Wayne Rooney, prosecutors said in July.
