Court rulings blocks Arkansas plan for multiple executions

Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson R-Benton speaks at a legislative subcommittee meeting at the Arkansas state Capitol in Little Rock Ark. Arkansas' attempt to carry out its first execution in nearly 12 years wasn' Court rulings blocks Arkansas plan for multiple executions

After two scheduled executions were blocked earlier this week, Arkansas shifted its focus to a pair of lethal injections scheduled to take place back-to-back Thursday night at a state prison southeast of Little Rock.

The ruling delivered a further setback for the state, which last carried out an execution a dozen years ago and contends it must act quickly because its supply of another of the three drugs used in the lethal mix expires at the end of April.

The vecuronium bromide is the second of three drugs used in the state's protocol.

After quick briefing from both sides, the Arkansas Supreme Court issued a stay of the injunction - meaning the stay can use the execution drugs - while the appeal is heard.

Meanwhile, the Arkansas Supreme Court on Wednesday granted a stay of execution to inmate Stacey Johnson, who had been set to die Thursday.

On Wednesday, a state circuit judge blocked the use of another of the drugs Arkansas acquired for lethal injections, after US pharmaceutical wholesaler McKesson Medical-Surgical Inc accused the state of obtaining the muscle relaxant vecuronium bromide under false pretences.

The first two inmates scheduled for execution on Monday were spared — one of them by the U.S. Supreme Court minutes before his death warrant expired — and one of the two rulings on Wednesday could scuttle the entire schedule.

Death row inmates Stacey Johnson (left) and Ledell Lee are both scheduled to be put to death Thursday, though court rulings have put those executions on hold for now. "Harm that could not be addressed by (monetary) damages", Gray said in a ruling from the bench, siding with the medical supply company McKesson Corp., which sued to stop Arkansas from using its drug to kill condemned inmates.

The state of Arkansas may go 0-for-8 in an ambitious plan to execute eight inmates this month after suffering two more legal blows on Wednesday. Four of the eight have been granted stays of execution.

It is likely that appeals Thursday will reach the U.S. Supreme Court and could stretch well into the night, as occurred Monday, when the justices released a late order that ultimately prevented the state's first attempt at an execution.

Parents win battle over toddler's last name of 'Allah'
They said the last name of the child, who was born in 2015, should either be Handy, Walk or a combination of the two. This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed.

The state acquired midazolam, one of the three drugs it intends to use on its series of executions, in 2015.

A state employee's signature on McKesson documents approving the return was a forgery, and the employee in question, Jennifer Dean, does not work for her department, Kelley testified. The state is expected to appeal to the Arkansas Supreme Court. The two sides have been waging battles in state and federal courts over these lethal injections. The first two executions were canceled because of court decisions. "I know that this is disappointing and hard for Carol Heath's family and her two children who were home at the time of the murder". Outside groups and the candidates spent more than $1.6 million previous year on a pair of high court races that were among the most fiercely fought judicial campaigns in the state's history.

In court papers filed Thursday, they say any new judges assigned to their cases in a state court at Little Rock should have time to become familiar with their pleadings.

Four of the eight inmates originally on Hutchinson's schedule have now received stays of execution, leaving four remaining who still could be put to death. A spokesman for the Arkansas Department of Corrections declined to comment on McKesson's claims, but the state argued in court filings that the company "willingly sold a drug. and then experienced seller's remorse".
