A West Texas judge has warned to check for Zoom filters before attending meetings after an attorney accidentally joined a video court hearing while using a Zoom filter that made him appear like a cat.
Judge Roy Ferguson shared a clip of the meeting online.
“I’m here live. I’m not a cat,” the attorney said. “I can see that,” replied Ferguson.
These fun moments are a by-product of the legal profession's dedication to ensuring that the justice system continues to function in these tough times. Everyone involved handled it with dignity, and the filtered lawyer showed incredible grace. True professionalism all around!
