Last August I reported that Legal Zoom.com settled a class action filed in Missouri claiming that it was illegally practicing law in the state of Missouri. Go here for more details.
Legal Zoom is now back in the news. The Wall Street Journal law blog is reporting that Legal Zoom has filed a lawsuit in North Carolina claiming the State Bar has accused Legal Zoom improperly of engaging in the unauthorized practice of law. The suit asks the court to declare that Legal Zoom is authorized to sell its self-help legal service on the Internet. Go here for more information.
UPDATE: 11/28/11: The Lincoln Tribune recently published a story on this case here.
