DoNotPay offers $1 million to any lawyer who uses its AI chatbot to argue before U.S. Supreme Court

DoNotPay CEO Joshua Browder, a British-American lawtech entrepreneur, has offered $1 million to any lawyer or person who uses his AI-powered robot lawyer app to argue an upcoming case in the United States Supreme Court.

The AI, which is based on OpenAI’s viral GPT-3 API, will argue the case in court for $1 million, according to Browder. All the human lawyers would have to do is wear AirPods and repeat what DoNotPay’s robot lawyer says.

“DoNotPay will pay any lawyer or person $1,000,000 with an upcoming case in front of the United States Supreme Court to wear AirPods and let our robot lawyer argue the case by repeating exactly what it says,” Browder wrote on Twitter on Sunday night. “[W]e are making this serious offer, contingent on us coming to a formal agreement and all rules being followed.”

Since programs or AI bots cannot argue a case in front of a court in the United States, or anywhere else for that matter, due to legal technicalities, DoNotPay will provide appropriate responses to the defendant via an earpiece, which he or she can then use in the courtroom. So, Browder’s plan is to have a lawyer wear AirPods while his AI chatbot argues the case.

It should be noted that AirPods and other electronic devices are not permitted in the Supreme Court, so how the task will be completed is unknown.
