Here’s what U.S. District Senior Judge Marsha Pechman, who has overseen four remote jury trials in the past year, has to say to all you Zoom trial haters out there.

Pechman said that the crisis created by the pandemic has actually created an opportunity to make some things about the federal judiciary work better.
