Glenn Mulcaire, the British private detective who hacked phones for News of The World, has been ordered to reveal the names of the people who directed him to do so. Bloomberg reports that Mulcaire lost his appeal to prevent having to name the people who hired him.
This is big, obviously. While over 10 people have been arrested so far, the only News of The World employee named has been Clive Goodman, a former reporter who was sent to jail for hacking in 2007.
The list is expected to be filed in court by August 30, and if some guy by the name of James Murdoch is on there, we wouldn’t be surprised at all.
