Unless there is evidence that the misdeeds extended beyond the News of the World, it is unlikely there will be any significant fall-out in the US....
Here you go -
"According to The Guardian, The Independent and the BBC, investigators working for the News of the World, The Sun and The Sunday Times obtained information about (then PM Gordon) Brown's family, his legal, his financial and his medical records."
"The Sunday Times allegedly posed as Brown to obtain his personal financial records."
"The Daily Mirror also floated allegations that News of the World journalists tried to hack into the phones of victims of the 9/11 attacks.
A source told the Mirror that a then-New York City police officer (now a private investigator) was approached and offered money if he would hack into the victims' voicemail. The officer reportedly declined the offer."http://www.huffingto...g_n_894588.html
Oh, and this couldn't have happened to a nicer guy -
"The growing phone hacking scandal has sent News Corp’s shares down 13% since the story first broke. The share price collapse had wiped more than $5bn off the market value of News Corp. The drop was most painfully felt by the Murdoch family, which with a 39.7% shareholding, saw its paper fortune reduced by more than $2bn."http://www.guardian....s-share-buyback
