Avvo Finds Itself in the Dock
The lawyer rating site Avvo has been hit with a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Seattle. Plaintiffs claim unfair competition and deceptive acts of commerce under the Washington [State] Consumer Protection Act. Plaintiff's also seek class action status. Much of the suit is based on the apparent inconsistencies in ratings. Two Supreme Court Justices rate the same as an attorney who is serving prison time to defraud the government.
Details on the suit are in the Washington Times,and the Seattle Times. The latter has links to other information relating to the story. Good thing for Mike Nifong, recently disbarred prosecutor in the Duke rape case, that Avvo doesn't cover North Carolina. Who knows how high he would rank.
