Glossip v. Gross
United States Supreme Court; Case No. 14-7955
Decision below Warner v. Gross, 776 F.3d 721 (10th Cir. 2015).
NACDL opposes the death penalty in all cases, regardless of the method of execution. NACDL believes that the drug protocol adopted by the State of Oklahoma violates the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment. Cases like that of Richard Glossip and his fellow petitioners call upon us, their lawyers, at a minimum to assure those who are facing imminent imposition of the sentence of death that their constitutional rights will be protected. The State of Oklahoma has made it impossible for us to provide any of those assurances to these petitioners or to their fellow inmates on Oklahoma’s death row. The conduct of the State of Oklahoma is inconsistent with the values of our society and our Constitution.
