Hans Reiser's Son In Russia, Misses Court Appearance

Filed under
Reiser

The preliminary hearing for Oakland software developer Hans Reiser on charges that he murdered his estranged wife, Nina Reiser, was thrown into turmoil Tuesday when the couple's son failed to return from Russia to testify in the case.

Seven-year-old Rory Reiser testified on the first day of his father's hearing on Dec. 11, but he was scheduled to testify again Tuesday at the request of Alameda County Superior Court Judge Julie Conger, who is presiding over the hearing.

Rory and his 5-year-old sister Nio went to Russia over the holidays with their grandmother Irina Sharanova, the mother of Nina Reiser, a native of Russia who disappeared Sept. 3.

Rory and Nio were scheduled to return to the Bay Area on Sunday.

Hans Reiser didn't attend Tuesday's hearing because traffic problems delayed the bus that transported him from the county jail to court.

Reports state Reiser's son is likely to stay in Russia as courts there are seeking custody.

  • Regulation can fix security, except you can't regulate security
    Every time I start a discussion about how we can solve some of our security problems it seems like the topics of professional organizations and regulation are where things end up. I think regulations and professional organizations can fix a lot of problems in an industry, I'm not sure they work for security. First let's talk about why regulation usually works, then, why it won't work for security.
