stice Neil Gorsuch took his first major action on the U.S. Supreme Court by casting the deciding vote to let Arkansas begin executing a group of death-row inmates.

In a series of orders Thursday night, the high court cleared the state to execute Ledell Lee, one of eight convicted murderers that Arkansas has been trying to put to death before one of its lethal-injection drugs expires at the end of the month. Arkansas executed Lee minutes after the court rejected the last of his requests.


So, it's not only Arkansas is trying to just rush executions...this case?

The trial judge was sleeping with the prosecutor and crucial DNa evidence was not tested. With an appeal lawyer who kept showing up drunk if you know the history of the case.

f***ing abominable. And to those with the hard ons for legalized execution, would it have been a huge problem to try the case with competent defense counsel with a judge who wasn't screwing the prosecutor?

If any of this is true and you're not just exaggerating things, then how on earth was this not declared a mistrial?

It's almost as if the "justice" system is a misnomer...

That'd require competent legal representation. Lee didn't have that.

I'm not exaggerating that, btw. The judge was having an affair with the prosecutor and they got married later:

https://www.innocenceproject.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/4.19.2017-Motion-and-Memo-to-Recall-Mandate.pdf

" %u201CLee was tried by a judge who concealed his own conflict of interest: an affair with the assistant prosecutor, to whom the judge was later married. Mr. Lee%u2019s first state post-conviction counsel introduced the evidence of the affair by calling the judge%u2019s ex-wife, who testified about the affair after opposing the subpoena. That lawyer, however, was so intoxicated at the hearing that the state moved for him to be drug tested after he slurred, stumbled, and made incoherent arguments,%u201D"
