*Various Claimants v MGN Ltd

Disclosure and inspection of documents – Order for disclosure. The defendant media organisation's appeal against a judgment refusing permission to vary a disclosure order failed, in the phone hacking litigation brought by various claimants for misuse of private information as a result of the unlawful interception of voicemail messages left on their mobile phones. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that the judge had not erred in considering an alternative arrangement to be unworkable, and had not wrongly equated what was in the interests of justice with what had been needed by the claimants to bring the claim.
