British actor John Alford, left, watches as Rebekah Brooks, center, the former chief of News Corp.'s British operations leaves after appearing in her phone hacking case at the Old Bailey court in the City of London, Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2012. Brooks and Coulson appeared in London’s Old Bailey court Wednesday for a hearing along with five other people charged in connection with the phone hacking scandal that originated at the News of the World tabloid and rocked Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. empire. Rebekah Brooks, the former chief of News Corp.'s British newspapers, and Andy Coulson, the ex-communications chief for Prime Minister David Cameron, learned Wednesday that they will face trial next September over allegations linked to phone hacking.
