Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes walked out of federal court on Friday with a delay in her criminal fraud trial until 2020 — but she wouldn't say if she walked down the aisle.
CNBC approached Holmes, who wasn't wearing a ring, as she was leaving her car outside the U.S. District Courthouse in San Jose.
"Are congratulations in order for your marriage," CNBC asked Holmes.
"Elizabeth, are you legally married?"
Holmes remained silent.
Holmes and co-defendant Ramesh "Sunny" Balwani are charged with nine counts of wire fraud and two counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud with the now-defunct blood-testing company.
They each face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
Inside the courtroom, Judge Edward Davila said the trial will begin on July 28, 2020, with jury selection.
The judge set aside three months for the trial.
During the hearing defense attorneys sparred with the government over claims that they're withholding critical documents.
"We have a lot of work to do. We want to be right and organized and we want to present a coherent defense to this court when this trial starts," Lance Wade, an attorney for Holmes, told the judge.
Prosecutors said the requested documents are in the hands of government agencies.
Davila instructed both sides to return on July 17 with an update.
Holmes founded Theranos, a blood-testing startup, in 2003 and grew the company to a valuation of $9 billion.
The Theranos promise was sweet: they could run hundreds of lab tests with just a drop or two of your blood.
A string of high profile people with deep pockets invested in Theranos, including Oracle founder Larry Ellison, venture capitalist Tim Draper, President Trump's education secretary Betsy DeVos and the Walton family, heir to the Walmart fortune.
But it all came crashing down after the Wall Street Journal revealed the company's claims were false in a series of articles beginning in October 2015.
The company shut down in September 2018.
