Prisons chief: Supplier error got Nevada its execution drugs

Nevada drug maker sues over execution drugs sent in errorNevada's prisons chief testified Tuesday that after more than 200 drug companies refused to supply drugs for use in an execution, a supplier's mistake on a buyers' list gave the state an opening to obtain a sedative that officials want to use in a twice-postponed lethal injection.

Under questioning by drug company lawyers, Department of Corrections Director James Dzurenda said the top state pharmacy official jumped at the chance last May, and once Nevada had to the drugs Dzurenda felt no obligation to return them.

"If I didn't have any contract with them and did it legally, I would keep it," Dzurenda told Todd Bice, a lawyer representing Alvogen, maker of the sedative slated to be the first of three drugs in the execution of twice-convicted killer Scott Raymond Dozier.
