A federal judge has sanctioned a second lawyer who “intentionally joined in the bad faith misconduct” during opening statements of a trial against Monsanto Co. over its herbicide Roundup.

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria of the Northern District of California sanctioned Jennifer Moore, co-lead trial counsel in the second trial over Roundup. The order follows a Feb. 26 decision in which Chhabria sanctioned plaintiffs attorney Aimee Wagstaff, of Andrus Wagstaff in Lakewood, Colorado, for “obvious violations” of his pretrial orders during her opening statement. At that time, he ordered Wagstaff to provide the names of other attorneys who worked with her on that opening statement, which she did last month.
