The Bay Guardian reports that Judge Marla Miller rejected a request by the SF Weekly and owner Village Voice Media to delay the start of its trial on charges of predatory pricing. Jury selection is set to begin today in San Francisco Superior Court and last for two days. Miller has scheduled opening arguments for Monday. The Guardian is suing its rival, claiming it sold ads at below cost in an attempt to run the Guardian out of business. See "Weeklies slam each other as they go to trial" and a report by the San Francisco legal newspaper, the Daily Journal, on the lawsuit (via the Guardian's Web site).
