Former U.S. Senator and Democratic Vice Presidential nominee John Edwards reactivated his license in May and, according to a CNN affiliate, will return to the practice of law in his native North Carolina. WCYB reports that Edwards and David Kirby (who joined Edwards in forming a law firm in 1993) have opened Edwards Kirby in Raleigh. The announcement is Edwards’ first public move since being acquitted of campaign finance charges last year and weathering a messy divorce. Edwards, who says he “was born to” practice law, plans to expand his scope this time around to include cases of social injustice. The firm reports that in addition to personal injury claims, it is working on several bad faith insurance, price fixing and discrimination cases.
