Apparent Tensions Between Reiser and Attorneys Won't Delay Trial

Filed under
Reiser

Apparent tensions between murder defendant Hans Reiser and his defense lawyers surfaced today but opening statement in his trial on charges that he killed his wife, Nina Reiser, last year remain set for Monday.

Alameda County Superior Court Judge Larry Goodman held a closed hearing with Reiser, a 43-year-old computer science engineer, and his attorneys, William DuBois and Richard Tamor, between 4 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. today, excluding prosecutor Paul Hora and reporters.

When he emerged from the hearing, DuBois said opening statements are still scheduled for Monday.

Reiser, who carried large bundles of documents, huddled with DuBois and Tamor in private and informal talks for much of the day in Goodman's courtrooms.

Goodman had attempted to resolve all pretrial issues in the closely watched case on Thursday, but Reiser's lawyers asked for another hearing today at the last minute.
Reiser, his attorneys and Hora appeared grim, raising the possibility that Reiser was seeking to fire his lawyers on the eve of his trial.
