Fugees Rapper Says Lawyer’s Use Of AI Tanked His Case, Pushes For New Trial

Prakazrel “Pras” Michel argued this week that use of the generative AI program was one of a number of errors his previous attorney made a trial for which he was “unqualified, unprepared and ineffectual,” according to a motion for new trial his new lawyers filed this week.
