— Former Sen. John Edwards is looking to open up a new law firm in Raleigh in September, CNN is reporting.

Quoting an unnamed source, CNN said Edwards wants to resume practicing a practice specializing in plaintiff’s attorney. Edwards was a highly successful trial lawyer before he began his political career, winning a Senate seat in 1998.

The former Democratic vice presidential nominee has begun to show signs of becoming more active since he was acquitted a year ago on a charge of illegally using $1 million in campaign contributions to cover up his affair and child with Rielle Hunter, a campaign videographer.

He has recently re-activated his law license and he is scheduled to speak at a retreat Thursday in Orlando for the legal marketing firm PMP.
