Elizabeth Holmes and Balwani Grapple with Fallout from Theranos Scandal

Elizabeth Holmes’ lawyer wanted the judges to look closely at the trial’s outcome. But the judges didn’t give a clear answer. One of them, Ryan Nelson, seemed to understand Elizabeth Holmes’ situation more. But they didn’t say when they’d make a final decision. For now, Elizabeth Holmes stays in prison until August 2032.

Theranos used to be seen as a symbol of American innovation. Elizabeth Holmes promised that her blood-testing machines could detect diseases with just a drop of blood. But it was all a lie. Now, Elizabeth Holmes and her former partner, Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani, face the consequences. Balwani is also trying to change his conviction. He says the trial wasn’t fair. Both of them are dealing with the fallout from their lies.
