Both a state and federal judge in Arkansas have put a halt (for now) to several executions in Arkansas. These executions were scheduled to start next week.
The federal injunction is based on the pain caused in executions when using midazolam. The state injunction relates to the sneaky underhanded usage of drugs by Arkansas Department of Corrections knowing that the drug company did not approve of the usage. Documents below:
