Another lethal injection litigation update

There is more news from the litigation desk as the lethal injection scrummages (basics here) rage on:

  • As detailed here, the Fourth Circuit yesterday rejected lethal injection challenge brought by Vernon Lee Evans Jr., the death row blogger due to be executed next week.

  • As detailed here, the litigation over Missouri's lethal injection protocol seems for now stuck in the Eighth Circuit.

Karl Keys at Capital Defense Weekly has this execution watch noting that there are six executions still scheduled for February, but that perhaps only two "appear headed for serious lethal injection litigation."
