Spectators arrived in the middle of the night to get their place in line for the start of Elizabeth Holmes fraud trial. There were 30 people in line by 5:45 a.m. and a line snaked out the front gates of the courthouse before it even opened at 7:30.
Here to watch the trial is a mix of curious onlookers who have followed John Carreyrou's "Bad Blood" work, law students wanting to observe the trial, and a large mix of press including tech publications and international outlets from the U.K. and Norway. Seating is limited in the courtroom with only 34 seats open to the public and another 45 in an overflow room.
One of the more puzzling sights was three blonde women dressed in Holmes' typical style as CEO, with hair pulled back and a black turtleneck.
