Capital sentencing news and notes

Though Booker action has most of my attention, there is a lot of remarkable capital sentencing news worthy of a quick review:

  • TalkLeft here and SCOTUSblog here has the latest on the twists and turns in the federal death penalty case against Zacarias Moussaoui.

  • In North Carolina, as detailed here, defense lawyers are challenging the state's lethal injection protocol for an execution scheduled for Friday

  • Back at SCOTUSblog here, you can read about famed Texas capital defendant Johnny Paul Penry's latest possible trip to the Supreme Court.

  • And, speaking of Texas, as detailed here, the state executed its fifth death row defendant in 2006 this evening.
