URGENT: Stop the Execution!

This week, California is making plans to execute Albert Brown on Thursday, September 30th at 9:00 p.m., despite the fact that there are on-going legal challenges to California's lethal injection procedure pending in State and Federal Court.

State high court blocks murderer's execution
Bob Egelko, Chronicle Staff Writer

The California Supreme Court issued an order on Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2010, that thwarts the state's plans to execute convicted murderer Albert Greenwood Brown on Thursday night.

(09-29) 14:04 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- The California Supreme Court issued an order today that thwarts the state's plans to execute convicted murderer Albert Greenwood Brown on Thursday night.

The justices unanimously denied the state's request to allow new procedures for lethal injections at San Quentin State Prison to take effect by 7 p.m. Thursday, two hours before the 56-year-old inmate is scheduled to die for the 1980 rape and murder of a 15-year-old Riverside girl.

A federal judge granted Brown a stay of execution Tuesday, saying he needed more time to examine the new procedures and decide whether they removed the risk of failures in anesthesia that would subject the inmate to a prolonged and agonizing death. The state is appealing that ruling to the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco and could pursue a further appeal in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Today's state court order, however, means the execution could not proceed at least until Friday. And Friday is also the expiration date for the prison's supply of the sedative Sodium Pentothal, the first of three drugs used in lethal injections. A new supply is not due until early next year.
