CNN: John Edwards To Open Law Firm In North Carolina

John Edwards, the former U.S. Senator and 2004 Democratic vice presidential nominee, is making a move to open a law firm in Raleigh, N.C., CNN reported Wednesday.

The report cited an unnamed source who said that the firm, which is expected to open in September, will focus on plaintiff work.

Edwards, who mounted presidential bids in both 2004 and 2008, has largely avoided the public eye in recent years following his admission of an extramarital affair.
