Navigating AI Hallucinations and Court Requirements: A Must for Attorneys

Share this article

Check out the latest article on LinkedIn by James Sherer, a renowned attorney and Co-Chair of the Emerging Tech Team at BakerHostetler. The article highlights the increasing implications of artificial intelligence (AI) in the legal profession.

U.S. District Judge Brantley Starr (N.D. Texas) has now mandated a “Mandatory Certification Regarding Generative Artificial Intelligence” for attorneys appearing before the court. This certification requires attorneys to confirm that either AI generated no part of their filing or that any AI-generated content was verified for accuracy by a human using reliable legal sources.

Judge Starr emphasizes that while AI platforms have their merits, they are prone to hallucinations, bias, and lack the allegiance and conviction human attorneys possess. Attorneys must proactively understand and adhere to the court’s requirements and the emerging ethical and legal issues associated with AI usage in the practice of law. Failure to comply with the certification requirement may lead to the striking of an attorney’s filing.
