U.S. Supreme Court won’t allow Arkansas execution

SCOTUS stays Arizona executionsThe Supreme Court late Monday blocked the first of at least six executions planned in Arkansas over the next two weeks after a dizzying day of state and federal court disputes about lethal injection drugs, mental health claims and the right to legal representation.

The justices’ action represented a setback, but not a final blow, for Arkansas officials as they race the clock to execute convicted murderers before the state’s supply of a controversial sedative used for executions passes its expiration date. If that happens, all the executions will be put on hold.


Neil Gorsuch speaks more in one day on bench than Clarence Thomas did in 10 years

All-Male Panel Fails to End Maryland Law that Forces Women to Share Custody with Their Rapists

Male panel fumbles rapist custody lawFive Maryland legislators could have ended a policy that forces women to share child custody with their rapists. Instead the five legislators, all men, buried the bill.

Maryland is one of seven states without a law allowing women to terminate parental rights for their rapists, if their child was conceived as a result of sexual assault, according to reproductive rights organization NARAL. The state’s current policy forces survivors to negotiate child custody and adoption issues with their attacker. In a bid to update the draconian policy, Maryland Delegate Kathleen Dumais introduced legislation that would allow a woman to cut her rapist’s parental rights.

Courts Block 7 Executions Set For 11-Day Span In Arkansas

Court stays 11 Arkansas executionsA judge in Arkansas has issued an order blocking the state from executing six men next week, starting Monday night.

The state's compressed schedule had drawn widespread attention — for both the pace of the executions and the manner in which the state obtained the drugs it planned to use in the lethal injections.

The temporary restraining order by Pulaski County Judge Wendell Griffen followed one earlier Friday by another court, the Arkansas Supreme Court, which had stayed one execution. According to his attorney, Scott Braden, Bruce Ward is mentally ill and "has no rational understanding of the punishment he is slated to suffer or the reason why he is to suffer it."



Drugmakers File to Halt Use of Meds in Arkansas Executions

Drug makers halt execution drugsTwo pharmaceutical companies Thursday evening asked a federal judge to stop Arkansas from using their drugs in the planned lethal injections of seven death-row inmates over 11 days, with the first two executions scheduled for Monday.

Fresenius Kabi USA and West-Ward Pharmaceuticals Corp. said in the joint court filing that they believe the Arkansas Department of Correction bypassed controls on how the drugs are distributed. Those controls were established to alleviate risks to public health and the companies' reputations, finances and legal liability, the brief says.
