  • Judge Caught Shirtless During Zoom Video Court Hearing (REAL)

It's not easy getting used to a world in which your job requires you to now spend your day video conferencing instead of being in person. That's especially true in the courts these days and even judges are having a hard time adapting. A leading Brazilian judge shocked viewers who tuned in to a live-streamed court hearing when he appeared completely shirtless. Judge Carmo Antonio de Souza was part of a video call with other judges from the State Court in Amapa who are all working from home during the coronavirus lockdown. Sipping a drink, Souza was bare-chested as the camera went live, screening him alongside four formally dressed colleagues in Zoom chat windows. After initially raising the camera to just show his face, Souza then calmly walked off camera, coming back later dressed in his usual shirt and tie.
