Lethal Injection Case

| 1 Comment

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral argument in Baze v. Rees, the Kentucky lethal injection case, on Monday. Briefs and other pertinent documents are collected here. Orin Kerr has this post at the Volokh Conspiracy. Alison Nathan and Douglas Berman have this dialog on SSRN, forthcoming in PENNumbra. (Doug calls it a debate, but they don't really disagree enough to call it that, IMHO.) Adam Liptak has this story in the NY Times on the resistance toward going to a single-drug method.

The big day is finally here. I wonder if Justice Kennedy will comment on China's plans to use lethal injection soon. He recently has spent too much time worrying about what other countries do to restrict the death penalty.
