John Edwards heading back to private practice in N.C.

Former lawmaker and presidential candidate John Edwards, whose political career crumbled amid revelations of an extramarital affair and allegations of campaign finance violations, is heading back to private practice.

Edwards, who worked as a plaintiffs-side personal injury and product liability attorney in North Carolina before being elected to the U.s. Senate and later launching vice presidential and presidential campaigns,  is looking to start a new firm based in Raleigh, sources tell CNN (HT: National Law Journal).

Since receding from public view after his trial on the campaign finance charges resulted in acquittals on some charges and mistrials on others, Edwards has lived in Chapel Hill. He remains an active member of the North Carolina bar, according to CNN.
