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.

  • Top 3 machine learning libraries for Python
    You don't have to be a data scientist to be fascinated by the world of machine learning, but a few travel guides might help you navigate the vast universe that also includes big data, artificial intelligence, and deep learning, along with a large dose of statistics and analytics. ("Deep learning" and "machine learning" are often used interchangeably, so for a quick terminology primer that might help you understand the difference, read Nvidia's blog post, What's the Difference Between Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning?) In this article, I'll look at three of the most popular machine learning libraries for Python.
  • Which is the best programming language for beginners?
    What is the best language for a budding programmer to get their start with? There are probably as many opinions about which language is best for beginners as there are languages to choose from. And the options change all of the time. When we asked this question two years ago, Python came out on top as the clear winner. But is it still the best choice today?

Turns Out Lubuntu 17.04 Won't Ship with LXQt ISO Images as Initially Planned

Ubuntu Core Linux comes to i.MX6-powered IoT-friendly TS-4900 Computer On Module

One of the best things about the Linux kernel (and associated operating systems) is the ability to work on various hardware types, including ARM. Microsoft's operating systems, by comparison, are far more narrow. True, there is the lightweight Windows 10 IoT for ARM boards, but it is hardly a factor nowadays. Today, Ubuntu Core comes to the i.MX6-based and ARM-powered TS-4900 Computer on Module. While Android and other Linux options were already available for the IoT-friendly CoM, Ubuntu Core is still a major win. Canonical's revolutionary snap packages should work beautifully here. Read more
