WATERLOO (KWWL) -- The legal battle continues for Agriprocessors.

The state child-labor trial begins today in Waterloo.

Its the latest chapter in the two-year trial of the kosher meat packing plant.

The other managers named included Abraham Aaron Rubashkin the former plant's founder; former Human Resources Director Elizabeth Billmeyer, former Supervisor Jeffrey Heasley, and former Human Resources employees Karina Freund and Laura Althouse.
