The first-ever virtual jury trial in a Bexar County civil court is now on hold.
The trial was scheduled for Wednesday in Judge Antonia Arteaga's 57th District Court. But lack of consent from lawyers and their clients caused the trial to be postponed.
The virtual court is a pilot project in which everybody involved, including the judge, jury, attorneys and clients, participate remotely. A panel of civil court judges will choose a new case for the virtual jury, which will be chosen from the pool of 40 prospective jurors, starting Friday.
