Nolo effectively won that case in September of 1999 when the Texas Supreme Court's Unauthorized Practice of Law Committee sent Nolo a letter stating it was dropping its case:
Cause No. 99-03252
Nolo Press/Folk Law, Inc. et al,
the Unauthorized Practice of Law Committee;
in the 201st District Court of Travis County, Texas
The case was dropped after Texas passed H(ouse) B(ill) 1507 in the Spring of that year, and it was signed into law in June 1999. HB 1507 specifically excluded self-help legal products such as those which Nolo produces from being consider the "unauthorized practice of law" in the State of Texas. HB 1507 was obviously passed because of the very existence of the litigation and the bad press it was getting in your state.
Of course, in the face of that new law, the Committee realized it no longer had a case, hence its deciding to drop same.
However, if you read all of the various pieces of information regarding the case -- actual filings, articles, and letters of support from various parties around the country -- it's pretty clear that, even if HB 1507 had not been passed, Nolo would almost certainly have won anyway had the case ever had the chance to completely play itself out.
Nolo celebrated its victory, of course. Nolo's marketing slogan (on mugs, t-shirts, etc.) has always been "Law for All!" One of the posters Nolo created after the case was settled included a revised version of its slogan, "Law for All... Even in Texas!" I had the poster on the wall in my office when I was there.
Personally, I just shook my head when Texas decided to pursue the matter. It was just ludicrous! "Only in Texas..." I muttered to myself.
