Court ruling upholds Arizona’s execution protocol

Arizona’s protocol for three-drug injection executions has cleared another legal hurdle.

A trial judge in Phoenix had upheld the state’s protocol, and a ruling by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals turns down seven Arizona death-row inmates’ appeal.

The new ruling says the state’s protocol abides by standards set by the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on Kentucky’s similar protocol.

And the appeals court says the state appears to be following its protocol.
