The firm has recently settled four of those claims against MGN Limited (“MGN”) for Dwight Yorke, Jennifer Ellison, Danielle Lloyd and Andrew Cole. Out of Court settlements were reached for all four with MGN accepting liability and publically apologising in statements read out in Court today.
MGN accepted that its unlawful activities were widespread in three national tabloid newspapers, namely the Mirror, the Sunday Mirror and the People. Its journalists targeted the clients by hacking into their voicemails and by hiring private detectives to find information. Those actions caused significant distress and the clients were appalled to learn that they had been targeted in this manner. MGN also provided undertakings not to intercept or attempt to intercept voicemails in the future.
MGN accepted that the procurement of private information about the clients should never have happened and acknowledged that their behaviour was morally wrong and deeply regretted the wrongful acts.
