Easley Seeks License To Practice Law Again

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Former North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley wants to practice law again after his license was suspended for two years following a campaign finance-related felony conviction.

Easley's attorney has filed a petition with the North Caroilna State Bar to have his law license reinstated.

The two-term Democratic governor agreed in early 2012 to the suspension, which has started in December 2010. Easley accepted criminal responsibility in November 2010 for an improperly filed campaign finance report.

The petition says Easley has complied with Bar rules and hasn't broken any laws during the suspension period.

The reinstatement occurs if the State Bar agrees Easley has fulfilled all requirements.

The State Bar can object to reinstatement requests and let a special committee hold a hearing on the matter.
