Judge To Hold Hearing For Arkansas Death Row Inmates
A hearing is planned in the case of six death row inmates who want the Arkansas Department of Correction to provide documents about lethal injection drugs.
The hearing is scheduled for Monday morning in Pulaski County. Attorney Jeff Rosenzweig filed a lawsuit last week asking a judge to order the correction department to release the records under the Freedom of Information Act. The inmates are seeking documents containing information about the origin, history and quality of lethal injection drugs.
The attorney general's office wants the judge to dismiss the inmates' lawsuit. They say the documents the inmates are seeking are exempt from the public records law.
