In a first, a local Punjab court released its decision following the case’s processing on ChatGPT-4.
On March 29, Additional District and Sessions Judge Muhammad Amir Munir made the decision public.
According to the first information report (FIR), the petitioner, a young person of around 13 years old, was accused of abducting the complainant’s nine-year-old son and taking him to a desolate location.
In its ruling, the court noted that it had begun testing the usage of ChatGPT-4 to see if it could assist the legal system in passing clear and shrewd judicial decisions and verdicts that adhered to the law.
The court referenced the queries it posed to the AI chatbot and its responses in its ruling.
The court found the answers by the chatbot ‘impressive’.
Earlier on, the same court had also used GPT-4 in a civil suit and found the results interesting.
The court granted bail to the petitioner against surety bonds worth Rs50,000.
