Last month the WSJ reported on the upcoming criminal trial of Elizabeth Holmes, former CEO of Theranos Inc. This has been a fascinating story of one of the largest frauds committed in Silicon Valley.

Instructions: Read the following brief article and embedded video within this article WSJ John Carryrou Reporting on Theranos and Elizabeth Holmes) as it is a little scary but interesting. Also check out the HBO trailer video link below and comment on your impressions of this fraud. There is no required length here. I just want you to be exposed to this case.
