CASE ENTRY

McDaniel v. Precythe

Missouri corrections officials must, per state law, permit several members of the public to witness executions. Journalist: Which I have not been allowed to do, perhaps because I’ve written several articles critical of Missouri’s execution practices. The state’s current policy, whereby officials have unbridled discretion to choose who can serve as witnesses at executions, violates due process. Eighth Circuit: This suit can proceed.
