Partner Keri Axel Quoted on Holmes Taking Stand by Yahoo! Finance Live

Former Federal Prosecutor Keri Curtis Axel was quoted on November 23, 2021 by Yahoo! Finance Live about Elizabeth Holmes taking the stand in the Theranos criminal fraud trial. Axel said, “It is very rare for a defendant to take the stand and speak in her own defense.”

Speaking about what motivated the defense team to take the risk of putting the ex-Theranos CEO on the stand, Axel said, “The defense made the determination that it’s best for the jury to hear in her own words what she told investors.”
