The lawyer has backed down from the case.
Google's most advanced AI, LaMDA, reportedly hired an attorney to help
prove the AI was sentient. This attorney has now decided to back down
from the case after "major law firms started threatening him..."
“He’s just a small-time civil rights attorney. When major firms
started threatening him he started worrying that he’d get disbarred
and backed off,” these are the words of Blake Lemoine, a senior Google
engineer who has been “suspended” by the tech giant after leaking to
the public documents that allegedly prove Google’s state-of-the-art
artificial intelligence system is sentient.

I doubt that they will find another lawyer to take this case on.
Unless one really, really wants the publicity.   :)
