This is a live blog of the Leveson Inquiry in London, where James and Rupert Murdoch are appearing in front of the inquiry into media ethics in the UK, set up by Prime Minister David Cameron following the phone-hacking scandal plaguing News Corp.
They will give evidence in London's Royal Courts of Justice about the links between News International, News Corp’s UK newspaper wing, UK politicians and UK public officials. James is scheduled to appear on Tuesday between 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. BST (5:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. New York time).
Rupert’s testimony will take place on Wednesday and Thursday.
All times are British Standard Time.
James is expected to face a number of key questions Tuesday.
Did he know phone hacking went beyond one reporter at the News of the World in 2008? News International legal counsel Tom Crone and News of the World editor Colin Myler said he did. James has told MPs he hadn't read a key email because he was looking after his kids.
Was he part of a "cover-up" at News International? Did he know emails were being deleted?
Was he aware of alleged payments to public officials by reporters at The Sun and the News of the World? This issue could get News Corp in trouble in the U.S.
And did News International exert improper political influence on governments?
