Federal judge in Elizabeth Holmes’ trial outlines coronavirus-related courtroom changes as preparations forge ahead

A California federal court judge overseeing the case against disgraced Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes has begun making plans for how the trial will move forward while remaining in accordance with novel coronavirus-related guidelines for the courtroom, according to a recent report.

U.S. District Court Judge Edward J. Davila, who is presiding over the San Jose-based wire fraud case against Holmes and Theranos’ former chief operating officer Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani, warned that attorneys and defendants can expect “a very different trial of course in the COVID timeframe,”
