Robots need license to practice law
 
Bad news: Robot lawyer. Good news: He needs a law license. (link to story)

Quote:

A web-based "expert system" that helped users prepare bankruptcy filings for a fee made too many decisions to be considered a clerical tool, an appeals court said last week, ruling that the software was effectively practicing law without a license.

Even better news. It's dead.

Ziinet.com and 700law.com now lead to link fodder. I'd say the US justice system pretty much toasted this robot without the help of HUAR.

I like the ironic ending. The guy who owned the sites, "Ihejirika had a human lawyer for his defense"
