Resolution before ABA House of Delegates regarding companies that offer legal documents online is withdrawn

At a recent meeting of the ABA, the ABA House of Delegates was due to consider a resolution that proposed model rules for companies that offer legal documents online, but the resolution was withdrawn after the ABA Center for Innovation, the Standing Committee on the Delivery of Legal Services, the Business Law Section and the Section of Dispute Resolution argued the proposed guidelines needed more work before going forward.

You can read the proposed resolution here.

According to a story in the ABA Journal, there were concerns regarding warranties, intellectual property and dispute resolution. There was also uncertainty over whether the proposed guidelines would apply to courts offering online forms.  The ABA Journal has more details here.
