Reiser Attorney Seeks Mistrial

Filed under
Reiser

Defense attorney William Du Bois has filed papers asking for a mistrial on the grounds that Judge Larry Goodman improperly -- in open court -- strenuously rebuked Du Bois last month. (Du Bois firmly believes that the Reiser's son clearly testified that on Sept. 3, 2006 he saw his mother walk up the steps of Hans Reiser's home, get into her car and drive away.) Du Bois and the judge got into a huge argument in front of the jury on Dec. 12, accusing Du Bois of commenting on evidence not before the jury. Du Bois persisted in his assertions, and the judge threatened to hold Du Bois in contempt. "In chambers!" Goodman barked at Du Bois at one point.

In his motion filed today, Du Bois called for a mistrial. If Goodman denies the mistrial motion, then the defense "moves this court to correct its error by informing the jury to specifically disregard its inaccurate, intemperate, unfair remarks referenced above."
