‘I’m not a cat’: Texas lawyer trapped by cat filter informs judge on Zoom call

Despite the difficult times arising out of COVID-19, the newly introduced practices like online court proceedings often lead to funny stress-busting moments. One such incident took place on Tuesday (local time) when an attorney in west Texas accidentally left a cat filter on during Zoom call court proceeding and was unable to change it, eventually responding to a judge’s query about why he was being addressed by a digital feline by saying: “I am here live. I am not a cat.”

During a virtual court proceeding in the 394th Judicial District Court in Brewster County, Texas, attorney Rod Ponton accidentally logged on to the meeting with a cat filter emblazoned across his screen.

Taking to Twitter, Judge Roy Ferguson shared a video of the Zoom hearing and said, “IMPORTANT ZOOM TIP: If a child used your computer, before you join a virtual hearing check the Zoom Video Options to be sure filters are off. This kitten just made a formal announcement on a case in the 394th (sound on).”
