Testimony continued on Tuesday in the Elizabeth Holmes trial, as former Safeway CEO Steven Burd and former Walgreen’s Chief Financial Officer Wade Miquelon took the stand. Both former executives testified about how they were swayed to place Theranos machines in their stores, based on Holmes and former Theranos partner Sunny Balwani’s hype regarding partnerships they already had in place.
NBC Bay Area’s Scott Budsman, reporting live from outside the courthouse, spoke with Aron Solomon, editor-in-chief of Today’s Esquire, and chief legal analyst for Esquire Digital. According to Solomon, “it becomes this kind of maelstrom of confidence. Well, Safeway is doing it, Walgreens is doing it, look at the people they have on the board, like George Shultz. Look at the kind of investors they have.”
