Allegations of Misrepresentation

The lawsuit highlighted DoNotPay’s previous claims of being the “world’s first robot lawyer,” which the plaintiff argued were misleading. According to Jonathan Faridian, the plaintiff in the case, the platform failed to deliver on its promises. Faridian alleged that documents generated by DoNotPay were often of poor quality or inaccurate, rendering them unusable for their intended purposes.
