World’s First Robot Lawyer Is Being Sued

Remember the robot that was set to make history as the first AI to defend someone in court? We’re going to get to see how it does as a defendant, as DoNotPay has been sued for operating without a law degree. The US law firm Edelson has filed a class action case against the AI for “masquerading as a licensed practitioner.”

The attorney who filed the lawsuit, Jonathan Faridian, says he’s used DoNotPay’s AI to draft a discrimination complaint, a small claims filing, and a number of legal documents. He says he thought he was buying “legal documents and services that would be fit for use from a lawyer that was competent to provide them.”

DoNotPay says they have nothing to hide, and “may even use our robot lawyer in the case.”
