Mississippi’s high court rules the state does not have to publicly disclose details of how it carries out executions.
The state supreme court’s 7-2 decision dismisses a lawsuit that sought the release of Mississippi’s plans for executions and acquiring lethal drugs.
In the lawsuit, the Roderick & Solange Macarthur Justice Center argued the Mississippi department of corrections wasn’t disclosing enough information.
A chancery judge agreed, but the state appealed.
While the appeal was pending, legislators changed the law last year, joining states nationwide in shielding drug purchases and other execution methods from public disclosure.
Mississippi hasn’t executed anyone since 2012.
