Under CCP 170.6(a)(2), a party may file a second 170.6 challenge against the trial judge if the same judge is assigned to hear a retrial of the case after a reversal on appeal.  That provision applies, however, only to appeals from final judgments, not to appeals from interlocutory orders such as an order denying an Anti-SLAPP motion to strike in this case.
