The Ultimate Legal Showdown: Human Lawyers vs. Robot Lawyer

Prof. Rebecca Tushnet’s 43(B)log details the case of MillerKing, LLC v. DoNotPay, Inc. (S.D. Ill. 2023). DoNotPay is an online subscription service that offers legal services without being licensed to practice law. MillerKing, a small Chicago law firm, sued DoNotPay for false association and false advertising under the Lanham Act and Illinois state law, as well as unlawful practice of law under Illinois law. The false association claim was based on the theory that consumers are misled to believe that DNP is affiliated with licensed attorneys and that State bar authorities approve of or sponsor DNP’s services.
