Paxil Lawsuit Began Yesterday in Philadelphia
However, I have not found any stories confirming that the trial did, in fact, begin yesterday, and GSK has settled other Paxil-related cases. This trial is the first of several Paxil birth defect suits scheduled in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas for this fall.
UPDATE: From the Bloomberg link in the comments, it appears that jury selection did take place yesterday in Philadelphia, and opening arguments will be held today.

Possibly a very recent report of the day:

GlaxoSmithKline P.L.C. for years ignored evidence that its antidepressant Paxil may have caused birth defects, a lawyer told a Philadelphia jury today on behalf of a woman who says that taking the drug during her pregnancy caused her three year-old son's heart problems' [and more]
