State objects to order on execution drug

Posted By on Fri, Mar 31, 2017 at 10:53 AM

The state filed at the open of business today its request that the Arkansas Supreme Court stay Judge Wendell Griffen's order that the state Correction Department must turn over some manufacturer's information about an execution drug not specifically covered in the law that grants broad secrecy to the execution process.

The state argues that release of the information requested could lead to discovery of who supplied the drug, which is protected by law.

Shults response says there's no direct evidence that the information he's seeking could be used to identify a supplier or seller.
