San Angelo, Texas is overrun with lawyers. The city of 88 thousand is struggling to find accommodations for more than 350 attorneys who have volunteered to handle custody cases for the 416 children removed from the polygamous compound in Eldorado. Every hotel room is booked. Some are finding private homes to stay in. There is a strong sense of anticipation in town because this case is one for the history books. People here like to say, "Everything's big in Texas"...but the legal community has never seen anything this big.
