News (and no news) on capital cases
Capital Defense Weekly and Ohio Death Penalty Information and StandDown Texas Project all have new and interesting (and different) posts on death penalty developments in various states (including the stay of a scheduled execution in Texas).
And yet, I still am wondering about and remain mystified concerning the lack of news and information about the many stayed federal executions. Notably, states seems to be turning the corner on the lethal injection scrummages: Alabama and Indiana and Tennessee have all been able to carry out executions in recent days, and Florida appears ready to get back into the execution business. And yet, as I noted here and here last month, the Bush Administration seems to be readily embracing a de facto moratorium on federal executions simply because of questionable complaints about the federal execution protocol.
