Supreme Court to Consider Lethal Injection, Voter ID Laws

By Admin on September 25, 2007 3:38 PM

The Court has announced that it will review the case of two Kentucky death row inmates, and decide whether states' use of lethal injection as a method of administering the death penalty is constitutional under the Eighth Amendment's "cruel and unusual punishment" standards. The Court will also consider a challenge to an Indiana law that requires most voters to present government-issued identification at the polls, and will decide whether such laws have a discriminatory impact on minority and low-income voters.
