Bradley partner Jason Mehta was quoted in The National about the upcoming fraud trial surrounding Theranos and its founder Elizabeth Holmes.
Prosecutors allege that the start-up diagnostic company’s machines didn’t work and that Holmes knew about it, yet she continued to lie to investors, doctors and patients while raising more than $700 million.
“In terms of how much money the government has alleged has been lost, this case is actually not the biggest healthcare fraud case in the past year. There are many larger healthcare fraud cases than the Theranos trial,” Mehta explained.
“But in terms of media attention and scrutiny,” Mehta continued, “it certainly ranks right up there as one of the bigger cases in the past decade.”
