Kim Kardashian appeared in court on Friday, April 12, for a hearing about her divorce case, while estranged husband NBA player Kris Humphries was a no-show. The 28-year-old basketball player's team, the Brooklyn Nets, is scheduled to play a game in Indiana at 4 p.m. PT. Humphries was represented at the hearing by three attorneys. UPDATE at 3:11 p.m. PT: OTRC.com has learned that Humphries may face sanctions because he did not show up in court despite being ordered to do so. It is unclear what the sanctions would be if they are imposed. A hearing about the matter is scheduled for April 19. Lawyers for both sides have been trying to reach a settlement since Kardashian's Oct. 31, 2011 divorce filing. No agreement was announced on Friday. After leaving the courtroom just past 12 p.m. PT, an attorney for Humphries told KABC Teleivsion, OTRC.com's parent company, that a trial is still scheduled for May 6. Kardashian, who is expecting her first child with rapper Kanye West, sat in the jury box as the case was called and a judge sealed the proceedings due to rules that mandate confidentiality for divorce settlement discussions. The 32-year-old "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star arrived to court with heavy security and was brought into the courtroom through a back entrance. The wire service also reports that she joked before taking a seat in the jury box, "I always wanted to be a juror." Kardashian is seeking a divorce, while Humphries wants an annulment, claiming his marriage to the reality star was a fraud. He has appeared on her family's E! shows and their wedding was made into a TV special. Both Kardashian and Humphries are expected to testify at the trial. It will focus on the couple's relationship and his lawyers will try to find out whether element of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" and the family's other reality series are staged. Humphries claims Kardashian only married him because of the reality shows. In November, West was deposed. His and Kardashian's baby is due in July.
