In what might be a first across the United States, Texas judges on Monday invited a jury pool to a court proceeding over video teleconference.

And they found jury selection unfolded pretty seamlessly over about an hour and a half, with only one hiccup: A juror wandered off screen during a break and couldn’t hear the judges calling him back. Senior Judge Keith Dean said it was the digital version of at the courthouse, when court staff occasionally have to track down a juror in the hallway taking a phone call.
