My student Jewel Porter provided me with the following update on the DoNotPay story that we ran last week.
Alas, there is just no way to find out whether DoNotPay's robotic attorney could actually help a customer beat a parking ticket. Or is there? If Mr. Browder is really interested in trying out his robotic attorney in a real setting (but apparently not one in which his liberty is at stake), my offer stands. In exchange for a $1 million donation to my law school, I am ready to organize a Supreme Court style moot court at which Mr. Browder can show us the capabilities of his AI attorney. This offer is contingent on us coming to formal agreement and all rules being followed.
Curious minds might inquire what State Bar prosecutors are and whether they have the authority to throw someone in jail for six months. Do robots not get due process?
