I read this story where a US judge is forcing lawyers in his court to sign a pledge saying they did not use ChatGPT to generate filings without being checked by a human.
While that's a very reasonable thing, I am wondering where that authority comes from, or what the limits are. Can a US judge require lawyers in their court to sign other types of pledges?
What if they refuse?
What if they don't agree with it or feel it violates a freedom?
Is this similar to a judge's authority to charge people with contempt which also has no recourse?
