Federal Court Suspends Florida Attorney Over Filing Fabricated Cases Hallucinated by AI

Above the Law - Technology

Just a few weeks ago, I wrote about two more cases of AI-hallucinated citations in court filings leading to sanctions , and now comes the case of a Florida lawyer suspended from practice after filing cases that were “completely fabricated.” On March 8, the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida suspended attorney Thomas Grant Neusom from practicing in that court for one year, after which he will be eligible to apply for reinstatement.

Sharing of Information Across Blogs Published by Access to Justice and Legal Services Groups Could Bring Alignment to Their Work

Kevin O'Keefe

Great article by Robert Ambrogi, a few days ago. If you care about access to justice and access to the law, take a minute to read it. A big issue in access to justice and access to the law, per Bob, is that the groups working hard on these issues are not working in alignment, and probably don’t know what each are working on. Two travesties persist in tainting access by all to the U.S. legal system.

Access to Justice Requires Access to Law. So Why Aren’t the Advocates of Each More Closely Aligned?

LawSites

Two travesties persist in tainting access by all to the U.S. legal system. One is the gaping lack of access to justice. The Legal Services Corporation estimates that 92% of the civil legal problems of the roughly 50 million low-income Americans receive no or insufficient legal help. Reasonable minds can quibble over that number – some say it is exaggerated – but no one doubts or disputes that the legal system falls dramatically short of serving those who need it, not just for those with low inco

Have You Ever Had an AI Chatbot Say “I’m Not Sure”

Kevin O'Keefe

From a Seth Godin blog post , a couple days ago, If you ask an AI a question and it’s not confident in the answer, it should say, “I’m not sure.” That could be followed up with, “do you want me to guess” or “if you could give me more context…” Maybe not that phrase but I have had AI tell me it needed more context, it couldn’t answer that question and that it would not comment on a New York Times and OpenAI question as they were in litigation.
