🩸We're here outside the courthouse for US v Holmes again.🩸
We're in the courtroom and Elizabeth Holmes is set to testify for a third day.

NYT's liveblog of the events is live here ⬇️ nytimes.com/live/2021/11/2…
But first! Read @erinkwoo on the scene outside the courthouse. It's getting weird out there nytimes.com/live/2021/11/2…
Holmes admitted she added the logos of pharmaceutical companies to the validation reports she sent around to potential investors and partners, a major piece of evidence in the case.

"I wish I’d done it differently,” she testified.

Elizabeth Holmes believed.


That argument was a line of defense that Ms. Holmes brought up on Monday during testimony in her fraud trial.
We're done for the day.

Judge Davila reminds the jury to not talk about the case.

“We’re going to have Thanksgiving and I know that means strong fellowship with families, and friends. Do your best to pass the mashed potatoes and not engage in conversation with anyone.”
Then everyone gives a round of giving thanks for the court (no joke) and the judge gives thanks for the reporters who have been typing quietly. 🦃

🩸🩸🩸Hello from the the dark of night in San Jose where I’m lined up for Elizabeth Holmes to take the stand again in her fraud trial.
The press is here with cameras, camp chairs and hotel coffees.
Since I have roughly 4.5 hours to kill before this gets going, let’s talk about what has happened so far…

🩸US v Holmes continues.

Today we'll hear from Erin Tompkins, a patient, as well as Roger Parloff, a journalist.

But first, for every 1 hour of testimony there are roughly 3 hours of lawyer bickering over the scope of the testimony and today is no different!
Tompkins is back on the stand being cross-examined by Holmes lawyer Katie Trefz.

She says she attempted to get information about the testing from Theranos but was not provided any.

Trefz names the customer service rep Tompkins called and she doesn't remember.

🩸US v Holmes again🩸

The lawyers are fighting about whether to discuss the lost database of Theranos tests.

(Some background on it here: cnbc.com/2021/07/07/mis…)
Now Holmes lawyer Richard Cleary is arguing the defense should be able to include testimony of positive reviews / surveys of Theranos tests.
Judge Davila is skeptical. He said the majority of the customer comments talk about pricing bc they had no health insurance. Or they were given $100 gift cards by doctors. Not about the accuracy of the tests.

🩸"Our Holmes Matter" continues.🩸 Full week of testimony in US v Holmes after last week's announcement that the prosecution is likely to rest soon.

Alan Eisenman, a Theranos investor, returns to the stand for x-exam.
Eisenman was a difficult witness for the defense lawyers. He refused to go along with some of Kevin Downey's yes/no questions and it got testy.
Eisenman's direct testimony also brought up some pretty wild emails between him and Holmes+Balwani. They basically treated him like a stalker for asking for more info and threatened legal action. And then, incredibly, he still invested more $$ after that!

🩸 "Our Holmes Matter" continues in San Jose. 🩸

Holmes lawyer Lance Wade is questioning Dr. Das, Theranos's final lab director. Yesterday he testified that he decided to void as many as 60k Theranos tests.
(Me and the judge are trying to make "Our Holmes Matter" happen )
Before Dr. Das joined Theranos, CMS inspected Theranos's labs and issued a damning report about lab deficiencies, which we saw yesterday.
