In the case of Glossip v. Gross, the Supreme Court of the United States recently agreed to take up again the issue of lethal injection specifically as it relates to a three-drug protocol used in a number of the states, including Oklahoma.  Dale A. Baich, who represents the petitioners, provides an overview of this litigation, and explains how a ruling by the High Court, expected sometime in mid-2015, might change the manner in which executions are carried out in the United States.
