The rare incident happened in an online hearing of the District Court of Justice No. 394 in Texas (USA) on February 9.
According to CNN, the hearing was conducted via the Zoom application between Judge Roy Ferguson and three lawyers Jerry Phillips, H. Gibbs Bauer and Ron Ponton. However, when the display of the three lawyers appeared, the corner of attorney Ponton’s screen appeared a picture of a white cat. With a sad face and rolling eyes, the cat suddenly said, the voice of lawyer Ron Ponton: “Can you hear me, judge? It’s me, I’m not a cat ”.

At first, Judge Ferguson assumed that Mr. Ponton had turned on a certain effect in the Zoom app’s video settings. But the lawyer explained that he was borrowing his secretary’s computer to participate in the online hearing. Since the secretary or her daughter had turned on the cat-face effect the last time she used Zoom, this rare incident happened.
Judge Roy Ferguson also confirmed to CNN that this was an unintended incident, not an intentional joke, and he calmly instructed attorney Ponton to turn off the cat face effect on his Zoom screen. . Although the situation seemed “not very professional”, it was still resolved well by the parties, and lawyer Ron Ponton was not turned into a “joke” to his colleagues.
