Mysterious Delay At The Reiser Murder Trial

Filed under
Reiser

Without an explanation, an Alameda County Superior Court judge ordered a 24-hour delay Monday in the long-waited trial of Han Reiser for the murder of his estranged wife, Nina, whose body has never been found and who the defense claims fled to her native Russia to escape a messy divorce.

Nina Reiser, 31, disappeared last year after dropping her two children off at her estranged husband's house in a quiet section of the Oakland hills.

Prosecutors say there's no great mystery about what happened; they believe they can prove she was killed by her husband, Hans Reiser, even though her body hasn't been recovered. But the defense has maintained there is no proof Nina Reiser is dead, let alone slain, and she may very well be secretly living in her native Russia.

Opening arguments were rescheduled for Tuesday.

Rest is Rehash here

And:

Hans Reiser's Murder Trial is off to a slow start. Today with a packed hallway opening statements were suddenly postponed with little explanation.

In the courtroom though was a huge picture of Nina Reiser with one of her children as a baby. Hans Reiser was there too with his attorneys. I did not see him glance at the photo. By the time we left nothing was said in public. We did hear briefly from Hans Reiser's mother who said she believes her son is innocent. But she stayed away from reporters in the hallway as everyone took her picture.

Not much more here either




Han's defence

The article says the following:
"But the defense has maintained there is no proof Nina Reiser is dead, let alone slain, and she may very well be secretly living in her native Russia."

I really doubt that but how hard or easy is it to leave the US via a fake passport or something? This is probably just a desperate claim by the defense.

NVIDIA vs. AMD OpenGL & Vulkan Benchmarks With Valve's Dota 2

Yesterday marked the public availability of Dota 2 with a Vulkan renderer after Valve had been showing it off for months. This is the second commercial Linux game (after The Talos Principle) to sport a Vulkan renderer and thus we were quite excited to see how this Dota 2 Vulkan DLC is performing for both NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics cards. Here are our initial Dota 2 benchmarks with Vulkan as well as OpenGL for reference when using the latest Linux graphics drivers on Ubuntu. Read more

Why Hyperledger wants to be the ‘Linux of blockchain’

Blockchain technology offers many different benefits to enterprise developers — but there’s no cross-industry open standard for how to develop it. That makes it difficult for vendors and CIO customers to place their bets and begin building it into their technology architecture. Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation project to produce a standard open-source blockchain, wants to solve that problem, and it just got an executive director, Brian Behlendorf, to help it on its way. He founded the Apache Software Foundation, was previously on the board of the Mozilla Foundation and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and managed tech VC firm Mithril Capital Management. Read more
