There were reports of the staetments in open court in the Guardian and the Press Gazette but they did not feature in the rest of the press.

Although numerous cases have recently settled, it is understood that a substantial number of new claims have been issued in the Second Wave of the Mirror hacking litigation.

The settlements follow the substantial damages awards to Mirror claimants in the Gulati case (see our post here).  This decision was upheld by the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court refused permission to appeal.
