Death row inmates sue Idaho
Four death row inmates are taking the state to court to fight Idaho's procedures for lethal injection.
Among their complaints new policies give prison officials too much control, puts inmates at risk of severe pain, and would let unqualified employees perform medical procedures. The suit calls for a federal judge to put executions on hold.
There is a possibility the state could hold an execution in the coming months. Richard Leavitt murdered a woman in Blackfoot in 1984. He's waiting to see if the U.S. Supreme Court will consider an appeal.
