Lawyer Causes Delay In Hans Reiser Trial

Filed under
Reiser

The trial of computer programmer Hans Reiser on charges that he murdered his wife Nina Reiser was delayed for three weeks today because his lawyer is busy with another case.

Dressed in a blue blazer and a white shirt, Reiser, whose hair was rumpled, reluctantly told Alameda County Superior Court Judge C. Don Clay at a brief hearing that he agreed to waive his right to a speedy trial for another 10 court days, until May 29.

Reiser, 43, remains in custody in the Alameda County Jail without bail.
