*UPDATE* – Channel 10 picks up the story from JAABLOG …
The following is a message written by Dennis Bailey, speaking on behalf of the Broward judiciary. Apparently, lawyers are taking liberties with the virus-necessitated Zoom hearings, with a lawyer appearing shirtless, and another one with a master bed visible in the background. There are also some procedural tips included for the brave new electronic world, and the sad news that a judge’s spouse is battling Covid-19.
The message is posted on the Weston Bar Association’s website, and was reportedly emailed to others last Thursday with the “Please take note” header:
|Please take note of the 5th paragraph in case you happen to have, as I did this morning, a hearing conducted via Zoom.|
