Lawyers may use web sites as a tool to find people willing to sign up as plaintiffs for class action lawsuits. Lawyers must not make misleading statements and must disclose their financial interest in the case. See District of Columbia (D.C.) Opinion 302 (November 21, 2000). The opinion also noted that lawyers may participate in web sites that post RFPs for corporate work.
