Sunny Balwani Trial Postponed Until June 7: Court

NBC Universal, Inc.

The second Theranos trial focused on Elizabeth Holmes' former partner and boyfriend has been postponed until June 7, a court assistant told NBC Bay Area on Thursday.

A reason for the postponement was not provided.

Balwani, the former chief operating officer of the now-defunct company, is accused of defrauding investors and customers.

Prosecutors recently tried to link Balwani to Holmes when it comes to a key decision to mislead investors into believing Theranos had a working relationship with pharma giant Pfizer and to put faulty blood testing machines into Walgreens stores.

Opening statements in the trial were also postponed due to COVID-19 protocols in March.
