Cooey v. Strickland, No. 09-4300

By FindLaw Staff on November 25, 2009 11:36 AM

District court's order staying defendant's execution, based on preexisting litigation related to challenges to Ohio's method of execution including challenges stemming from the State's use of a three-drug protocol and its difficulty accessing usable veins in prior executions, is vacated as any challenge to Ohio's three-drug execution protocol is now moot because such procedure will not be utilized on defendant, and no basis exists for continuing the stay previously in effect.
