Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit considers adopting rule to regulate use of AI in generating legal documents

Yesterday I reported that the Colorado Supreme Court suspended a lawyer for using artificial intelligence.  Also, back in June I reported that a Texas federal judge began to require attorneys to pledge they did not use artificial intelligence to draft their documents.  See here.

I am writing about this again today because Law Sites is reporting that "[i]n what it appears would be a first for a federal circuit court, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is considering adoption of a rule change that would require lawyers and unrepresented litigants to provide a certification regarding their use of artificial intelligence in preparing court filings.  Lawyers and other filers would be required to certify either that they had not used AI in drafting the document or that, if they did, “a human” had reviewed the document for accuracy."

Go to LawSites for the full story.
