Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The judge makes a ruling that seems satisfactory and which offers guidance for future cases.

Con: She essentially ends up treating the AI the same as any other kid. The differences between the AI and a human child end up making no difference. The AI doesn't even come across as being different from a human child.

It’s hard to believe no one ever tried to make a copy of an AI before.
