Elizabeth Holmes testifies in her own trial – .


Elizabeth Holmes is expected to resume her testimony in her criminal fraud trial Monday after 10 a.m., after a break for the holiday weekend.

Just before 5 a.m., about 30 people – reporters and members of the public – had already lined up outside the courthouse in downtown San Jose, where his trial is entering its thirteenth week. Tickets to sit inside the courtroom are allocated on a first come, first served basis and there are only 34 seats available. An overflow room that has a live video feed can accommodate around 45 people.

His defense attorney, Kevin Downey of the law firm Williams & Connolly, will continue his questioning of Holmes. She has already spent around nine hours on the stand over the three-day trial. There is no clear timeline for when the defense will complete their questioning.

The government will then in turn have to confront Holmes over her claims that she intentionally misled investors, doctors and patients about her company’s capabilities. To make its case, the government called 29 witnesses over the 11 weeks, including investors, retail executives and former Theranos employees.

The Court only sits two days this week, Monday and Tuesday. He should be in session four days next week – Tuesday through Friday. The judge is aiming for Dec. 17 as his completion date.
