False Information From ChatGPT Prompts a Defamation Lawsuit

James Vincent writes the following in “OpenAI Sued for Defamation After ChatGPT Fabricates Legal Accusations Against Radio Host” for The Verge:

OpenAI has been hit with what appears to be the first defamation lawsuit responding to false information generated by ChatGPT.

A radio host in Georgia, Mark Walters, is suing the company after ChatGPT stated that Walters had been accused of defrauding and embezzling funds from a non-profit organization. The system generated the information in response to a request from a third party, a journalist named Fred Riehl. Walters’ case was filed June 5th in Georgia’s Superior Court of Gwinnett County and he is seeking unspecified monetary damages from OpenAI.
