Elizabeth Holmes and the fall of Theranos


After a long trial, Elizabeth Holmes has been found guilty of four out of the 11 charges brought against her. But this is only half of the trial, with Holmes’ business partner, Sunny Balwani, getting ready for the same legal fight. The Verge’s deputy editor Liz Lopatto breaks down the trial and what to expect in the months to come.

    I don't think she's gonna go to jail for a long time, and she's gonna get an easy sentence like Jordan Belfort.

    It's a bit more complicated than that. She was found guilty of deceiving investors for financial gain, and having the intent to do so. Her direct actions and words were said and done with the intent to deceive them for money. When it comes to patients, there is no clear case to be made that she /as a person/ lied to patients to /financially/ defraud them. There is STILL a case to be made on how Theranos defrauded patients or harmed patients, it's just not this one...

    A lot of people say that, but I’m not sure that’s completely true. A lot of juries would be more sympathetic to average people getting cheated and having their lives ruined as opposed to the super rich getting cheated. Most of her investors didn’t even try to sue her, they just let it go. What does screw her though is that with these rich people there was a lot more money involved and the large amount of money will be effect her sentence

    @Diggo It's pretty straight forward if you read the comment I was responding to. Jurors are told to judge whether the law put forward by the state was broken or not. Not whether any other people were wronged, whether a law is just to begin with or any other reasons. Google jury nullification and you will see why the system is broken (or more likely end up defending a broken system).

    @Sun Bear I don't really understand the distinction you're making. To be guilty of a crime is to have violated the law in question. I agree that there are points of failure which decide whether a person is ever tried or convicted of a crime. The police investigation, the prosecutor's decisions etc but is that the system or the people within that system?

    While there is no question that Holmes is a sofisticated con artist, no one is asking some key questions that are crucial: - How can a sofisticated investor invest $100M without any serious due diligence? - where was the board of directors? How come over all these years they never asked the right questions? - Why didn't the board react to the fraud allegations and start an inquiry? In fact they did the opposite and wanted to silence the whistle blowers instead of listening to them. Remember, companies make money buy selling products and services, and investors make money by selling companies and stocks in these companies whether they make something or not. One possibility is that the investors and board members knew all along what was going on and given all the hype and publicity about the company and its valuation before the fraud case came to light, they were hoping to do an IPO and stick it to the public: the investors, Holmes, and the board members would have became filthy rich, and all the small investors, retirement funds, etc who would have invested in the IPO would have eaten the dust down the road.

    @Space Faring Civilisation you don't need to be a subject expert to ask for the right questions. Here are some: - Why didn't they land a contract with the pharmaceutical companies they collaborated with (Pfizer, Plough, etc...)? - What do the reports from these companies say? - Why didn't the military sign a contract to buy their systems if the test results were good? - Why not open an inquiry after they heard from the whistle blowers?

    Since the 'go-go' 80's, start-ups and IPO's have adhered to the formula of having a great purpose(today, often with a partial charitable purpose), some figure head to lead the way, some facility, and a patent. From this, we've gotten great companies like Genentech, and others like the untold number of companies that folded, many of them never to even reach market.

    It would have been very helpful (for future reference) at the start of the video for you to give a 60 second rundown of who this Holmes is and why she was on trial to begin with. I had to stop watching 3 minutes in because I had 0 context.

    A wake up call?😱 She should have been found guilty on all of them. COMPLETELY intentional. I can't believe the jury wasn't sure she intended on ripping off EVERYONE in the name of money and fame. She deserves the maximum. All the multitudes of people she defrauded.

    @DrSpooglemon this isnt woke this is just being so anti-goverment and pro co-operations that you are willing to believe in a wild conspiracy instead of believing that a steve jobs impersonator committed fraud

    @Name Checks Out the whole thing was a setup to remove her ownership of the company and transfer it to the high level ex-government people who were on the board of directors. And it worked. The company has changdd ownership and the moronic public believes they got the bad guy.

    How many Holmes are out there? She was only caught because her lies, ego and greed were too big. If it were not for the young Schultz who was brave enough to denounce them, they would have sailed peacefully to selling the company or to an IPO.

    I mean, she just wasn't good enough at PR and memes. There's a certain rich somebody that constantly and endlessly fails to deliver on his promises but hey, his investors don't care about any final product all they care about is the hype and so they don't stop investing.

    So she's guilty of de-frauding the investors but not harming the patients, even though it was her defrauding of the investors that gave her the money to harm the patients? Right. Only the damage to the rich guys really matters. Got it.

    Do you really think people care about lying at a high level, once they get away with it for years? I'd say - not at all. I firmly believe believe people like that, given the severity of the crime - should be in prison for minimum 50 years with zero chance of parole. Some people like that, with a superiority complex, would become repeat offenders.

    @Ale Zuvic Absolutely. It sends a message. The message is: crimes will be severely punished. It's not rocket science. If the white collar crime prison sentences are greatly increased, with no chance of parole, there's a good probability the frequency of said crimes would decrease. The punishments are far too lax as it stands, for any form of physical harm to others.
