Two Seattle lawyers have filed a class action complaint (available via WSJ law blog) against Avvo, a lawyer rating website founded by a lawyer. The suit brings claims under Washington's Consumer Protection statutes, alleging that the website constitutes "unfair and deceptive conduct."
Justices Ginsburg and Alito apparently are part of the proposed class, defined as "All persons licensed to practice law in the United States and who are listed on the Avvo site and given a numerical rating."
