Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes
asked for a new trial on the grounds that she was unfairly disadvantaged by being tried before her ex-boyfriend and Theranos President Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani. Facing a sentencing next month that could put her in prison for as much as a decade, Holmes has filed a flurry of long-shot motions in recent weeks to try to get a new trial. In a filing late Wednesday in federal court in San Jose her lawyers claimed she would’ve been exonerated if Balwani had gone on trial first. Holmes, 38, was found guilty in January of defrauding investors and conspiracy for her role in Theranos’s collapse.
