N.Y. judge criticizes law firm for citing ChatGPT in attorney fee bid

A federal judge criticised a law firm in New York City for relying on an AI tool’s results to support its claim for attorney fees in a case against the city’s Department of Education. The law firm had used OpenAI’s ChatGPT as a “cross-check” to support other billing rate data presented in their fee request. The judge’s ruling stated that other lawyers who included fictitious case citations generated by new AI tools have been sanctioned or admonished. As AI technology advances, some judges and courts have established rules and guidelines to regulate lawyers’ use of AI.
