Cooey v. Strickland, No. 09-4474

By FindLaw Staff on December 09, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

District court's denial of defendant's request for a stay of execution by lethal injection challenging Ohio's new protocol where the state eliminated the use of a three-drug protocol and implemented a one-drug protocol is affirmed as the defendant is unable to demonstrate a likelihood of success on the merits on his Eighth Amendment claim by demonstrating that, facially or as applied to him, Ohio's new protocol demonstrates risk of severe pain that is substantial when compared to the known and available alternatives.
