If there had to be a single moment to exemplify how much has changed in the world of law, it would have to be a distraught lawyer affirming to a district court judge “I’m not a cat.” Yes, just when you think you’ve got this virtual hearing thing down, you find yourself the victim of your kid’s Zoom filter, frantically trying to de-kitty your visage before you argue your case.
The now infamous Rod Ponton, inadvertent viral video star after he appeared before a Texas Zoom hearing as a talking cat, probably doesn’t have to worry about any ethical issues—even when he took the brave step to muscle through as a kitten J.D., saying “I’m prepared to go forward with it.”
In many other cases, however, technology does present ethical issues lawyers should be aware of.
