More proof there are no boring executions (except perhaps in Texas)
ODPI has here links to the latest news coverage of an Ohio death row inmate's decision, after previously giving up legal challenges, to now try to join a lethal injection lawsuit just four days before his April 24 scheduled execution. I had thought that James Filiaggi's execution was going to go forward next week without any last-minute litigation or even much hub-bub, but now it seems that legal papers will be flying. Stay tuned.
