Another Roundup trial started on Monday in California after Monsanto failed to disqualify the judge.

Jury selection began in San Benito County Superior Court, where Monsanto, now owned by Bayer, attempted to remove Judge Patrick Palacios from the trial. After Palacios rejected the disqualification motion, Monsanto filed a Nov. 29 petition for writ of mandate before California’s Sixth District Court of Appeal, insisting that “if this court does not immediately stay the case below and issue the requested writ of mandate, Monsanto will be forced to go to trial with a judge who Monsanto believes is prejudiced against it and one of its attorneys.”
