In Walters v. OpenAI, the radio talk show host Mark Walters sued OpenAI for defamation after he found out that when a journalist prompted ChatGPT for information about an unrelated lawsuit, the tool falsely described Walters as a defendant in the case who had been accused of fraud. Walters is seeking monetary compensation from the company for the alleged reputational damage that its tool caused. Walters initially filed his lawsuit in Georgia state court back in June 2023. The case has moved slowly, in part because OpenAI sought to remove it to federal court. The case now appears headed back to state court for further proceedings.
