Following more than 3 months of testimony, the prosecution and defense rested on Wednesday in the Elizabeth Holmes trial. With closing arguments expected to begin late next week, the trial that began in August is entering its final phase before Holmes’ fate is deliberated by the jurors.
“Since she’s been on the stand, what she’s saying and the way she’s saying it, at times resonates with the jury and at times, isn’t going to resonate with the jury. So, it really remains to be seen.”
According to Budman, during her week on the stand, Holmes testified that while she was in charge of Theranos, she wishes she did some things differently. She also says she delegated certain things to co-workers, who came up short, and testified to abuse at the hand of former boyfriend, and co-Theranos executive, Sunny Balwani, but did not link the abuse to Theranos. She also admitted there is a lot she doesn’t remember.
Solomon added, “So given the fact that building, running and watching Theranos implode was remarkably traumatic, it’s clear Elizabeth Holmes could have some kind of post traumatic stress disorder, and could be honest when she says ‘I honestly don’t recall those things.’”
