Hear from Mark P. Scheer, Jennifer Crow, and Joe Hogan, of Scheer.Law PLLC about the completion of one of the first fully virtual, 100% Zoom 12 person jury trials in the State of Washington. The entire trial was by Zoom, with remote jurors, remote witnesses, and remote attorneys and judge – even remote deliberations!
Learn how Zoom voir dire works, and how to manage exhibits, trial and witness presentation, and opening and closing statements.
This was a brain injury case in which the plaintiff asked for $5 million. Plaintiff counsel had a trial consultant/IT support company. There are lots of interesting and novel issues involving a Zoom trial – but get ready, folks. This is the wave of the future, both through COVID, and perhaps beyond.
