Reiser Murder Trial: Divorce Was 'Hostile;' Couple Fought Over Violent Video Games

Filed under
Reiser

The divorce between Nina and Hans Reiser was acrimonious at best, and their disputes often surrounded whether their young son could play violent video games, the missing woman's family law attorney testified here Monday at the husband's murder trial.

"It was a huge bone of contention," divorce attorney Shelley Gordon testified in the trial's third week, "pretty much the whole case."

"That came up over and over and over again," Gordon added.

Nina filed for divorce Aug. 2, 2004, Gordon said, two years before she vanished. "It was very adversarial. It was very hostile. It just dragged on at a snail's pace," Gordon testified of the divorce.

The husband, who developed once-popular Linux file systems from his Oakland company Namesys, is accused of murdering his wife, who was last seen Sept. 3, 2006 after she dropped off their two young children at his Oakland hills house for the weekend.

Testimony is expected to last weeks or more.
