A must-read for those following lethal injection scrummages

Some time away from the computer during some time away from the office has allowed me to catch-up on my "to read" pile. Because of all the litigation over lethal injection protocols, on the top of that pile is the seminal article by Professor Deborah Denno: When Legislatures Delegate Death: The Troubling Paradox Behind State Uses of Electrocution and Lethal Injection and What it Says About Us, 63 Ohio St. L.J. 63 (2002) (available here).

Though already a little bit dated because of all the recent litigation, this article is amazingly timely in its analysis of both constitutional and policy issues surrounding execution methods.  If you are interested in these issues, you have to read this article.
