Steve Coogan and Sienna Miller, British actors, have received financial damages and apologies from Mirror Group Newspapers in the settlement of long-running phone hacking cases.

The damages were not made public but Coogan said outside London's High Court on Tuesday that it was a "six-figure" sum, the bulk of which would be distributed to charity. He said the settlement meant "vindication" for him.

Miller was not in court. Her lawyer said she had been extensively targeted by journalists for the Mirror group.

Coogan's lawyer said the newspaper group had produced at least 62 articles based on illegal phone hacking, illegally obtaining information about Coogan from third parties, and surveillance by private investigators.

Lawyer Richard Munden said the Mirror Group "acknowledges that Mr. Coogan was the target of unlawful activities and that these activities were concealed until years later." He said the media group apologizes for its "wrongdoing."
