The metaverse’s first court hearing took place in Columbia

Colombian courts held one of the first judicial hearings using metaverse technology. María Victoria Quiñones Triana, the Magdalena court’s magistrate, accepted the plaintiff’s request to hold the hearing in Meta’s Horizon Workrooms. The hearing was also live streamed on YouTube, while participants without access to VR headsets could participate via a standard video call. Before the hearing began, the judge said the credentials were given to the parties’ official email addresses to carry out each person’s identification.
