DAMAGES: A police blogger unmasked after the Times of London hacked his email has been awarded 42,500 pounds ($68,000) in damages from the newspaper's publisher, News International.

WHAT HAPPENED: The Times unmasked Richard Horton as the detective behind the award-winning "NightJack" blog, which provided a rare, behind-the-scenes look at policing in Britain.

INITIAL DENIAL: After Horton's lawyer raised the possibility that the detective's Hotmail account had been illegally accessed, a Times lawyer dismissed the allegation as baseless. But in public statements since, senior Times managers admitted that one of their reporters had accessed Horton's account.
