JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri attorney general’s office isn’t commenting about any potential implications from a court ruling about Oklahoma’s execution policies.

An Oklahoma judge on Wednesday ruled that state’s execution law unconstitutional because it prevents inmates from finding out the source of the drugs used in executions.

Missouri’s execution law remains in place. But Missouri has a similar privacy provision that state officials have cited while declining to release the identity of the business that supplies its execution drugs.

A spokeswoman for Attorney General Chris Koster declined to comment Wednesday about the Oklahoma court ruling, citing the fact that it involved ongoing litigation.
