Unlike the frenzy that has surrounded nearly every twist and turn in the Theranos saga, the trial of Elizabeth Holmes has been surprisingly mellow. Holmes, the former start-up executive whose downfall has been retold in a documentarybook and podcastfaces up to 20 years in prison in a case that many see as comeuppance for the wrongs of Silicon Valley.
Court proceedings in San Jose began last month with feverish media coverage, as reporters lined up before dawn to secure a seat in the courtroom and a man who said he was a bystander turned out to be related to Holmes. But the trial — now entering its sixth week of at least 16 — has quickly settled into, well, a trial. Apparently Holmes is easy to draw because she rarely moves, a courtroom artist revealed in the piece. The jury seems to be the biggest threat to the case staying on track.
The trial began with 17 jurors, including five alternates. In the first week, a juror was dismissed after learning that her employer would not compensate her for the time away.
Then last week, a juror was sent home after she said her Buddhist faith made her uncomfortable with the idea of punishing Holmes. Her replacement said she did not speak English well, though the judge did not allow her to leave. The jurors also have to be protected from any news coverage of the trial so they remain unbiased.
The judge begins and ends each court session by asking whether they have recently heard about Holmes or Theranos. If the of jurors drops below 12, there could be a mistrial, a major setback for prosecutors given that the trial has already been delayed repeatedly.
The prosecution is currently presenting its case, after which the defense will begin. I actually let out a tiny gasp. That once seemed unfair. Now it looks lucky.
