Federal Judge Warns Lawyers About Using ChatGPT, But Doesn't Prohibit Such Use


From the standing orders of Judge Arun Subramanian (S.D.N.Y):

F. Use of ChatGPT and Other Tools. Counsel is responsible for providing the Court with complete and accurate representations of the record, the procedural history of the case, and any cited legal authorities. Use of ChatGPT or other such tools is not prohibited, but counsel must at all times personally confirm for themselves the accuracy of any research conducted by these means. At all times, counsel—and specifically designated Lead Trial Counsel—bears responsibility for any filings made by the party that counsel represents.
