In a temporary-injunction appeal, the Fifth Court reasoned: “During the time of COVID, remote proceedings and electronic submissions are the rule rather than the exception. Sohail’s submission of his affidavit and other evidence electronically prior to the Zoom videoconference was in compliance with the trial court’s standing order. Sohail’s evidence was put into the record, referenced and discussed without objection from appellants. Although the trial court did not use ‘magic words’ admitting into evidence Sohail’s affidavit and electronic submissions, the trial court’s order granting a temporary injunction repeatedly states that it was based on Sohail’s evidence.” Kazi v. Sohail, No. 05-20-00789-CV (Oct. 28, 2021) (mem. op.).
