ERRE HAUTE, Indiana (Reuters) - A U.S. federal judge issued an injunction on Monday delaying what would have been the first federal execution in 17 years, scheduled for later in the day, thwarting at least for now the Trump administrations goal of reviving capital punishment at the federal level.
Judge Tanya Chutkan of the U.S. district court in Washington ordered the U.S. Department of Justice to delay four executions scheduled for July and August to allow continuation of the condemned mens legal challenges against a new lethal injection protocol announced in 2019.
The scientific evidence before the court overwhelmingly indicates that the 2019 Protocol is very likely to cause Plaintiffs extreme pain and needless suffering during their executions, Chutkan wrote in her order.

Knew it when I read the headline.
A ClownBammy Resistance “judge”...
Appointed by Obama (of course).
Obama appointee, nuff said.......
It’s time to tell those judges to “*uck off?”
Is it wrong of me want to bring back Chain Gangs? There is a HUGE untapped manpower pool for road work, cleaning up parks, trimming trees, etc. in the incarcerated.
Heck! They could be the cleaning crews for when the ‘Peaceful Protestors’ tear up a town!
But, nobody ever asks me. :(
I assume their will be an immediate appeal.
The ruling said plantiffs had identified two alternative methods of execution that would reduce the risk of serious pain. A pre-dose of opiods or execution by firing squad.
Give him the opiods. There is no point in causing him pain on his way out. He will meet his Maker soon enough.
A Federal judge-president, issuing galaxy-wide injunctions against anything the Trump administration tries to do...
The defense lawyers probably have a list of sympathetic Federal Judges to be brought into play in a sequential order with the specifications of a single issue for each appeal. It was a life sentence after all in spite of being called a death sentence.
Another judge that thinks the Judicial Branch rules the Executive and Legislative Branch. I blame the Not So Supreme Court for not cracking down on the lower court judges.
This pile of dogsqueezins is going to be around a long time - she’s only 58 years old.
Was scheduled for 4pm, but looks like he’ll make dinner.
They’d be begging me for the pentobarbital after the first half-hour or so...
I looked up one of them
and this guy whacked a family of three. So my question is, did this family, which included an 8 year old, feel any terror or pain as each one was killed? Was death instantaneous?
But I do agree all this ceremony of strapping someone down, sticking needles into them with a parade of guards and witnesses is just stupid.
After their final appeal, they should be taken to a crematorium, shot, and thrown in the fire.
Marxist / lesbian / homosexual Federal Judges are doing anything, ANYTHING they can to thwart the President.
Ah, you’d have unions suing all over the place.
Private and city.
They could do the job for 100x more money and 5x more slowly :)
