Elizabeth Holmes putting on ‘very believable act’: Lashinsky
FOX contributor Adam Lashinsky comments on the unravelling of the Theranos trial.
The jurors responsible for assessing 11 charges of fraud and conspiracy against former Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes are scheduled to begin their third day of deliberations on Thursday.
If they haven't reached a verdict by the end of the day, U.S. District Judge Edward Davila and the attorneys for both sides will discuss the possibility of taking a break until Jan. 3. The jury had originally signaled that it was willing to deliberate during the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day.

On Tuesday after roughly 13 hours of deliberation, the jurors asked U.S. District Judge Edward Davila whether they could take home the 39-page document spelling out their legal instructions to study it more carefully.
The request, submitted just ahead of a previously scheduled one-day break in their deliberations, was swiftly rejected on the grounds that all jury deliberations are supposed to happen inside an isolated room in the San Jose, California, courthouse where the trial was held.
