The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit recently published a concurring opinion in which the judge explained how he used different AI-powered large language models like OpenAI’s ChatGPT to interpret words and phrases at issue in the case decided. Snell v. United Specialty Insurance Company, No. 22-12581 (11th Cir. May 28, 2024)(Newsom, J., concurring).

AI in the law is now mainstream when an appellate court includes references to how it was used as part of an analysis in connection with a published opinion.
