It's believed he may have hidden assets and a judgment is sought so a search for these can be conducted.

Hans Reiser sued by own kids for $15 million

  • In cases like these, the children's interests are asserted by their guardian and the children themselves kept as distant from the action as humanly possible.

    The beginning of Monday's trial was marked by impatience from the judge and the children's legal team. The complaint against Reiser was originally filed in August 2008 by the children's maternal grandmother and legal guardian, Irina Sharanova. The case has been stalled as Reiser filed various motions to delay proceedings and claimed that he has not had adequate access to his legal documents while at Pleasant Valley State Prison in Coalinga.
    Reiser, dressed in his orange prison uniform and appearing antsy at Hayashi's denials, has subpoenaed his children to appear in court.

    They are living in Russia with Sharanova and are not expected at the trial, Gonzalez said.

    "I personally don't think it would do the children any good to come here and testify in this trial," Gonzalez said outside the court. "They'd have to relive what they went through as very young children."
