At least five in-house lawyers at Netscape Communications Corp. are leaving the company in the wake of last month’s merger with America Online Inc., but general counsel Roberta Katz will be sticking around — for now at least.

It was not known Friday if any AOL legal positions have been or will be cut as a result of the merger.
