LONDON (Reuters) - Interior designer Kelly Hoppen accepted 60,000 pounds in settlement of her High Court action over the News of the World phone hacking scandal on Friday. "The parties have now agreed to settle their differences," her solicitor told a packed London court. (News international and news group newspapers) have agreed to pay 60,000 pounds to the claimant as damages as well as her costs. Hoppen is one of around 60 claimants who have lodged cases against News International, charging that they had their phones hacked to generate stories by people working for the now defunct News of the World tabloid.
