We'll have to wait a bit longer to learn the trial date for former Theranos boss Elizabeth Holmes, who was silent Monday as she returned to court for the first time since an HBO documentary about her aired, per People. The 35-year-old, who traded her traditional black turtleneck for a gray pantsuit, showed a slight smile as she was led past cameras. She appeared alongside former Theranos president Ramesh "Sunny" Balwani, who is likewise facing charges of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit fraud. Balwani's lawyer argued more time was needed to review some 20 million pages of documents in the case, prompting Judge Edward Davila to delay setting a date until after a July 1 hearing, per the San Francisco Chronicle. The trial is expected to take about two months. (More Elizabeth Holmes stories.)
