A court in Texas is making work-from-home history by holding what is believed to be the first jury trial on Zoom. The trial, a civil lawsuit over hail and wind property damage, began Monday in Collin County, as courts throughout the country continue scaling back in-person proceedings in the wake of the coronavirus. More than two dozen potential jurors logged onto the videoconferencing app for jury selection, which was live-streamed on YouTube, Reuters reported.
