A second jury in two weeks has failed to reach a verdict in a trial alleging Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder caused mesothelioma.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephen Maloney declared a mistrial on Tuesday, the third day of jury deliberations in a trial that began about a month ago. The mistrial comes a little over a week after another jury deadlocked in a separate trial against Johnson & Johnson involving the same Dallas-based plaintiffs firm, Simon Greenstone Panatier. In that case, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Margaret Oldendorf declared a mistrial following a week of deliberations and numerous efforts to assist the jury in reaching a verdict.
