It looks like Glenn Mulcaire will be forced to reveal who ordered him to hack the phones of celebrities. The private investigator, once employed by the now shuttered News of the World tabloid, lost a court appeal ordering him to say who it was that ordered him to illegally tap into voicemails, reports The Guardian. So "by the end of next week," according to the paper, we may have new revelations in the ever-widening scandal:

Mulcaire must now name names in relation to [model Elle] MacPherson, [politician Simon] Hughes and four others – the celebrity PR Max Clifford; the football agent Sky Andrew; Jo Armstrong, a legal adviser to the Professional Footballers Association; and Gordon Taylor, the former head of the PFA. 

Yesterday, it seems noteworthy, The Guardian reported that Mulcaire was suing News International for deciding not to pay his legal bills anymore. They dropped him in late July.
