Case Law: Various Claimants v MGN, Judge orders Mirror Group to give phone hacking “generic disclosure” | Inforrm's Blog: "On 28 October 2014. Mr Justice Mann, the judge managing the Mirror Group phone hacking litigation, handed down a judgment dealing with the disclosure being sought by the claimants from MGN (Various Claimants v MGN  EWHC 3655 (Ch)).
He ordered MGN to give “generic disclosure” in relation to phone hacking – that is documents going to the general practices of phone hacking at Mirror Group newspapers.
The claims have been brought by a number of individuals in respect of phone hacking and allied wrongs said to have been committed by newspapers. Eight or nine cases are to be tried in February 2015 as test cases.
The pleaded cases fall into two parts. First there is “claimant specific” information which is said to demonstrate that a particular claimant was phone hacking. Secondly, there is material relied on which is described as “generic”." 'via Blog this'
