Letter from the Unauthorized Practice of Law Committee

 

    The Supreme Court of Texas

           UNAUTHORIZED PRACTICE OF LAW COMMITTEE

 

 September 21, 1999

      Mr. Peter D. Kennedy

      GEORGE & DONALDSON, L.L.P.

      1100 Norwood Tower

      114 West 7th Street

      Austin, Texas 78701

 

 RE:

     Cause No. 99-03252; Nolo Press/Folk Law, Inc. et al, v. the Unauthorized

     Practice of Law Committee; in the 201st District Court of Travis County

 

Dear Mr. Kennedy:

 

In response to your September 13, 1999, letter, this will serve as confirmation that the

Unauthorized Practice of Law Committee and its Dallas and Houston subcommittees

have terminated their investigation of your client, Nolo Press HOU 97-067, and DAL

97-125.  Based on the recent legislative changes, the UPLC has asked that their

subcommittees no longer pursue any pending investigations involving those self-help

legal publications to which the legislation applies.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.

 

Sincerely,

Stephen A. Moyik

Assistant Disciplinary Counsel
