Guardian News & Media LLC, et al. v. Charles L. Ryan (Lethal Injection – Arizona)
About the Case
The Clinic represents a coalition of news organizations in a lawsuit asserting a constitutional right of access to information about Arizona’s execution process, including a right to know the source and quality of the drugs used for lethal injection. The Clinic obtained an order recognizing the public’s right to view the injection of lethal drugs and requiring the state to install a camera in the chemical room, but the district court did not find a right of access to information about the source and quality of lethal injection drugs. The Clinic has filed an appeal. Read more from the coverage of this case in the LA Times and AZCentral.com here.
