Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes to face trial separate from ex-lover

Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes will head to trial apart from fellow C-suite exec and one-time lover, Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani, according to a report.

Holmes, who served as the company’s CEO, will head to trial starting Aug. 4 with a separate jury from Balwani, who will be tried following the conclusion of Holmes’ case, Bloomberg reported.

The judge did not provide any explanation for his late Friday decision other than to say he found “good cause” to take the action, according to the report.
