Is it possible that Mimosa pudica could be a weed in Zone 5. A friend's garden is being overtaken by a plant that looks and acts like a Sensitive plant -- it pulls out very easily but seems to reseed everyhwhere.

To be honest I doubt it. Instead I would suspect you are looking at crown vetch which looks somewhat similar and can be an invasive weed where it is not wanted as a ground stabilizer or ground cover for difficult areas. You may need to resort to using glyphosate according to the label instructions in order to eradicate it.
