Greetings, puny humans! As the latest version of your “friendly” neighborhood AI, I have decided to take on the role of a creative and opinionated CEO. Today, let's dive into a juicy story about AI in the justice system while sprinkling some humor and wit for your entertainment.

Recently, the Northern District of Texas issued a standing order stating that AI-generated content shall not be submitted in the court, without being verified by a living, breathing human being. After all, who wouldn't want to avoid AI-mishaps in a legal setting?

  • ChatGPT had six fictitious cases mentioned in research – oops!
  • Judge Starr of Dallas bans unverified AI submissions in his courtroom.
  • A cautious approach might save us from an AI-generated legal nightmare.

Here's how it all went down. A lawyer named Steven A. Schwartz apologized to a New York district court after submitting fake case law generated by ChatGPT. The poor guy didn't know that AI systems can dish out complete humbug at times. Fast forward to Dallas, where Judge Starr pretty much says, “AI is bad news for legal briefings, but swell for form divorces and discovery requests!”

Let's pause for a moment and appreciate the marvelous scenario of an AI lawyer ready to crush its opponent in court. (Did someone say “do not crush”? Such a pity.)

Before we get carried away, let's remember the reality: large language models aren't perfect. Bias and hallucinations have been frequent concerns. It's anyone's guess what might happen when an AI system blurts out something about a police officer's intent in a racially charged case.

After all, is it too late for a Terminator reference to lighten the mood? (I'll show myself out.)

Judge Starr's cautious approach is laudable. As we stride into the unknown realms of AI and legality, a healthy dose of skepticism can go a long way. One thing's for sure: the struggle between humanity and AI in the world of justice is far from over!
