Several Arkansas Inmates Seek To Have Appeal Dismissed
Several Arkansas death row inmates are seeking to have their appeal dismissed in a case involving the state's public records law.
The inmates' lawyer, Jeff Rosenzweig, filed a motion to dismiss their appeal in Pulaski County Circuit Court on Thursday.
Rosenzweig previously filed a conditional notice of appeal in the Freedom of Information Act case in April after a judge said the information the inmates were seeking was exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act.
The inmates had initially asked the court to order the Arkansas Department of Correction to turn over documents about the drugs the state planned use to execute them.
Since April, the same inmates involved in the public records lawsuit have become involved in a separate lawsuit challenging the state's new execution law.
