Where a restaurant operator sued a corporation that prepares annual minutes for corporations alleging the unauthorized practice of law and violations of the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act, the trial court erred in finding that the defendant was not conducting the unauthorized practice when charging a fee for the prepared minutes that allegedly met legal requirements, and the court also erred in denying class certification, so the judgment is reversed and remanded for the court to certify a proper class and for further proceedings.
Judgment is reversed and remanded.
