Rhoades execution is on...

U.S. Magistrate Judge Ron Bush has issued his 43-page decision in Paul Ezra Rhoades' last-minute bid for a stay of his execution - scheduled for Friday - while he challenges Idaho's lethal injection protocol, and the judge has denied a stay. That means Idaho's first execution since 1994 is on for this Friday at 8 a.m. "Rhoades has not demonstrated entitlement to injunctive relief," the judge wrote. "Therefore, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT Plaintiff’s Emergency Motion for Preliminary Injunction or Stay of Execution (Docket No. 17) is DENIED."
