Elizabeth Holmes Testifies: Theranos Founder “Wishes” She Had Listened To Whistleblower Elizabeth Holmes said during testimony yesterday that she wished he had treated whistleblower Erika Cheung, a junior lab worker at Theranos, “differently”.  “I sure as hell wished we treated her differently and listened to her,” Holmes reportedly said on the stand on Wednesday, according to Bloomberg.  When addressing Cheung, who blew the whistle on defective blood-testing technology at the company, Holmes said she never threatened her, but did acknowledge that “attorney David Boies was hired to serve her with a subpoena”.

Holmes also admitted that Cheung was threatened with a lawsuit.

Holmes said in court Wednesday: “I knew our lawyers were following up with her”, supposedly to prevent Chueng from disclosing trade secrets.

The prosecutor then asked Holmes: “You know today that Erika Cheung was right?” “Yes,” Holmes responded.  Holmes also discussed potentially trying to get in front of John Carreyrou's Wall Street Journal story about her.
