On August 10, 2020, Florida’s Fourth Circuit held the nation’s first fully remote civil jury trial to reach a binding verdict. The voir dire was conducted remotely over a two-day period, with Judge Bruce Anderson telling potential jurors that they were making history with their remote appearances. It was a damages-only, one-day trial, since default judgment had been entered against the sole defendant. The jury awarded the plaintiff more than $354,000, which exceeded the amount sought. There were occasional hiccups – for example, one juror briefly lost connection during the presentation of evidence. But glitches were resolved, and the trial generally moved according to schedule. In this episode of The Litigation Room, Amanda McGovern and Angela Nieves discuss the question: Can a trial court judge order a virtual civil jury trial?
