Earlier this month, counsel for embattled Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmesannounced their client is pregnant, spelling all but certain delay for her highly anticipated fraud trial. A federal judge made that postponement official on Wednesday, setting a new trial date agreed upon by prosecutors and defense attorneys: Aug. 31 this year.
“We of course wish Ms. Holmes the best wishes and we wish her event to be a happy one and a healthy one,” Judge Edward J. Davila, from the Northern District of California, remarked during a Zoom conference on Wednesday morning.
