'I’m not a cat': lawyer gets stuck on Zoom kitten filter during court case

A lawyer showed up to virtual court in the 394th district of Texas with a kitten filter turned on, the cat moving its lips and eyes, as Rod Ponton said he and his assistant were attempting to remove the filter during the court case.
The judge later posted the snipped and wrote: 'If a child used your computer before you join a virtual hearing, check the Zoom video options to be sure filters are off. This kitten just made a formal announcement on a case in the 394th.'

    The funny part is that it says that recording this hearing may constitute contempt of court and result in a fine of $500 and a jail term up to 180 days 😂 looks like someone is going to jail 😂
