Robot Lawyer Overturns 160,000 Parking Tickets

Joshua Browder, who is a student at Stanford University, has created a robot lawyer to handle parking tickets.  Those in the legal profession are stunned as they find that the thing actually works.

The program, coded solely by Browder, has overturned 160,000 parking tickets in 21 months across New  York and London.  Working at no charge, for free, saving people a total of $4 million in fines, DoNotPay swiftly revolutionized the industry with people still staring in shock.

The next question that comes naturally asks how robot lawyers will impact the legal profession.

“Until we get machines that are smart enough to look for and understand the legal implications of a particular email or document or voicemail message, I think lawyers being lawyers and clients being clients, somebody’s going to have to actually go through and make sure it's OK to produce it,” Karl Bayer, a lawyer in Austin, Texas who is often hired to oversee the electronic discovery process, told the Monitor.

DoNotPay might be able to get your parking ticket dismissed. Maybe someday that will be extended to speeding tickets. But for the foreseeable future, legal issues like those that plague the Clintons, will still require a human lawyer. DoNotPay is not prepared to take on cases of that magnitude.  So the legions of attorneys in the U.S. can breath a sigh of relief.
