I interned at a county courthouse this past summer and zoom court was an experience. Judge was on mute several times and had to be reminded, which was always a bit awkward. Yes, a steno is required even on zoom but it leads to a lot of "I can't hear anything, please repeat" by the poor person stuck with the job. My favorite was the lack of understanding that zoom court is still court and some behavior is just as unacceptable online is it is in person. Several people showed up shirtless and the judge just about lost it every time. Some idiots brought their phones into the bathroom but left video and audio on. That should be a crime in itself.
