Judge Antonia “Toni” Arteaga of Bexar County’s 57th Civil District Court swears in a jury pool for virtual jury selection on Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2020. But the trial was delayed until Sept. 21, because no lawyers consented for their case to go to trial yet. Photo: 57th District Court YouTube channel
