(KSL News) A raid on a Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints' (FLDS) ranch will soon become a legal battle in a Texas courtroom.
Today lawyers representing the FLDS Church filed a request urging a judge to immediately stop searches at the Eldorado compound.

We discussed the decision tonight in our Talking Point segment. David Leavitt, the former Juab County Attorney who prosecuted polygamist Tom Green, joined us.
