Ok, maybe that isn't the best byline. February has six scheduled "serious dates." At the moment two of those scheduled executions -- at least -- appear headed for serious lethal injection litigation, Vernon Evans and Michael Morales. Evans was denied relief and, if executed, is a likely botch candidate (more on that in a subsequent post). Morales has purportedly been granted discovery on three post-mortems done after past executions. The three remaining of the six cases are from Texas, 'nuf said. [Correction: I have received from a good source that Glenn Benner has not filed and may not be filing a lethal injection challenge after all. Earlier posts were based on a faulty report that in fact there had been a lethal injection filing were based on faulty information. My apologies to those who apparently have been aggrieved by the early posting. Mea culpa. - k]
Executions to watch
DISCLAIMER The site contains, chiefly, the thoughts and analysis of Karl Keys. It is designed to be a first draft of history & a first draft review of case law, not the last. The goal is to get timely, accurate and germane information to those involved or interested in capital litigation. In the balance between speed and accuracy, speed sometimes wins. The law may have changed, we may have misread and misunderstood something ten years ago and still be clinging to a misperception. It is not intended to be a comprehensive review of the law. This web site is only updated on a semi-regular (whenever there is nothing good on TV or pending court deadline). Any information or links contained on this website should not be viewed as the furnishing of legal advice or as to any claim of specialization rather is given for informational puproses only and does not constitute the formation of an attorney-client relationship.
