    Could The Legal Or Court System Be Automated?

    Is it possible to remove lawyers, attorneys, prosecutors and judges from the legal system and use an automated or computerized system whenever possible thereby reducing the influence of money or lack thereof?

    More automation would make it less fair.  Do you take the human element out of picking a jury? Do you want a server making judgement on you? What about mitigating circumstances?  I would be very wary of pre-set decision programmed into a system of justice.  We see it with red light cameras and school zone cameras now.

    In short, no. Otherwise, you risk justice being determined on demographic checkboxes met (black victim given moral weight over the white due to historic acts, instead of the actions of those in the case). You risk court victories assigned to those who know the algorithm or bias being built in by the algorithm.
