DALLAS, TX—Stewart Law Group (SLG) Founding Partner, Amy M. Stewart made history, becoming one of the first trial attorneys to present a case presentation to a jury over Zoom.
With 10,000 cases estimated to be on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, officials in Collin County had a unique idea: to conduct a virtual summary jury trial. The case was hand-picked from the court’s docket and the parties conducted the first live voir dire jury selection that was streamed live over Zoom.
