Phone-hacking allegations against both The Sun and the now defunct News Of The World are due to be heard at the High Court.
The latest round of the long-running litigation involves four individuals – including comedian Vic Reeves, and Coronation Street actor Jimmi Harkishin.
The others are TV presenter Kate Thornton and talent manager Chris Herbert.
They allege they were the victims of unlawful information gathering by News Group Newspapers (NGN), resulting in 79 disputed articles.
The trial in London, before Mr Justice Mann, is expected to last at least four weeks.
It is only concerned with the disputed issue of liability.
The four individual claims are likely to be heard first with the “generic” case to follow.
