A federal judge says the BP oil spill federal trial will happen in at least two phases.

The first will look into possible causes of the well blowout that triggered a deadly rig explosion and led to the massive spill.

The second phase will take a look at efforts to stop the flow of oil from BP's Macondo well.

That trial is set to begin next January.
