Reiser Jury Selection Postponed Due to Judge's Emergency
Nearly a year after Nina Reiser disappeared, her husband Hans Reiser appeared in Alameda County Superior Court today for the start of jury selection for his trial on charges that he murdered her, even though her body hasn't been found.
However, jury selection was postponed for at least a day because Judge Larry Goodman had a family emergency and didn't come to court.
Three separate panels of 100 potential jurors each are slated to come to Goodman's courtroom this week and next Tuesday to fill out questionnaires.
But actual questioning of jurors won't begin until Sept. 19.
