Federal judge rejects groups’ execution case
BOISE | A federal judge has denied a petition from news organizations that want to strike down Idaho’s policy of restricting full access to executions.
The Associated Press and 16 other news organizations filed a federal lawsuit last month targeting the portion of Idaho’s policy that prevents witnesses from viewing lethal injections from start to finish.
In a ruling Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge took issue with the timing of the claim, saying the lawsuit had been filed too close to the scheduled June 12 execution of Richard Leavitt and could cause a delay.
Judge Lodge said the public has an interest in viewing the entire execution, but it also has an interest in seeing the judgment against Mr. Leavitt enforced without disruption.
The news organizations are considering appealing.
