I don't understand how come a pair of highly-respected local lawyers takes on the case for the CofS. I mean, it's like being a Mafia lawyer. They can't be *that* hard-up for money.
It can't be doing their reputation any good at all. As I imagine they will discover as they get more and more involved in the blood and guts.
Texas is both a big state, but a relatively small community in the legal arena. Had drinks with one of my attorneys and chatted about this when SP times first broke it. He said he knew the firm the COS hired, they had a good name, but supposedly were loosing attorneys because of financial problems. Perhaps the found the goose that laid the golden egg filled with nitroglycerin!
