A Shocking Twist in the Elizabeth Holmes Saga If Elizabeth Holmes’ play for a new trial is just an attempt to delay her sentencing – it’s working. Holmes, now 38, dropped out of Stanford at age 19 to start Theranos, a now-defunct blood testing company that was once considered a Silicone Valley unicorn.

On Sept. 6, Holmes filed a petition for a new trial based on the reliability of testimony provided by former Theranos lab director Adam Rosendorff.

Earlier this week during a status conference held via Zoom, the federal judge who oversaw Holmes’ criminal fraud trial ordered an evidentiary hearing during which Rosendorff will testify.

Rosendorff allegedly told Holmes’ partner, William Evans, that prosecutors tried to make everybody at Theranos look bad and made things sound worse than they were.

Rosendorff also attempted to contact Holmes’ attorney, Lance Wade of Williams & Connolly, but Wade told U.S. District Judge Edward Davila that he has not been able to communicate with Rosendorff about these concerns due to ethical restrictions on attorneys’ communications with represented parties

On Sept. 6, Holmes filed a petition for a new trial based on the reliability of testimony provided by former Theranos lab director Adam Rosendorff.

Rosendorff, who testified during Holmes’ trial that he repeatedly raised concerns about the accuracy of blood tests being administered to patients during his time at the failed startup, is now expressing regrets about his testimony .

according to the 17-page court document. Rosendorff also testified during former Theranos COO Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani’s trial.

Fishing for the truth

“I don’t think it will be a lengthy process,” Law360 quoted him as saying. Speaking directly to Holmes’ lawyer, he added, “This is not going to be a fishing expedition.”

“Really what I want to know is, did [Rosendorff] tell the truth?” The Wall Street Journal reported him saying.

Since Rosendorff’s surprise visit, Holmes’ lawyers have filed two unrelated motions for a new trial. Davila has not yet made any decisions on those motions.

The judge in the case, US District Judge Edward Davila, expressed skepticism of this whole situation, even questioning whether it was a “fishing expedition” for the defense to net more evidence. He also noted that Rosendorff’s testimony was not likely to be relevant to the charges on which Holmes was convicted, which relate to defrauding investors
