Theranos Trial Paused Over Possible Juror Covid-19 Exposure – The Wall Street Journal

Just days into Theranos Inc. founder Elizabeth Holmes’s criminal-fraud trial, issues have come up with three jurors in the case, raising concern from the federal judge overseeing what’s expected to be a more than three-month-long trial.

U.S. District Judge Edward Davila canceled Friday’s scheduled court day during a remote hearing held Thursday, after one juror said he may have had a Covid-19 exposure and would be taking a lab test this weekend. An over-the-counter test had tested negative.
