Young, successful, eloquent: Elizabeth Holmes had everything to become the new American technological icon. Then their business collapsed. A process must now show how much guilt it is.

The great thing about a fairy tale is that in the end everything will be fine – no matter how many witches, wolves, mother-in-law, and mother-in-law are working on a different outcome in the meantime. The fairy tale that Elizabeth Holmes lived for almost 15 years is an exception in this regard: a child of good family who drops out of school, rises with her company to become the youngest self-made billionaire in the world and already as the legitimate heiress of the founder of Apple, Steve Jobs, is applicable. But instead of going to Tech-Olympus, she ends up in court. The trial begins Tuesday in San José, Calif., And the allegation is multiple fraud.
