Arizona Execution Drug Case Heads to Supreme Court

By: Astrid Galvan and Jim Salter

A case challenging Arizona’s refusal to reveal detailed information about the lethal drugs it plans to use to put an inmate to death is now headed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The dispute centers on whether a man convicted of killing his estranged girlfriend and her father has a constitutional right to know more about his execution than Arizona officials have been willing to disclose.
