Supreme Court sides with an inmate who wants to die by firing squad

The SC on Thursday ruled in favor of a death row capture in Georgia who’s challenging the state’s murderer injection rules and seeks to die by firing team — a system not now authorized in the state.

The court said the capture could bring the challenge under a civil rights law that allows individuals to seek remedies when their indigenous rights are violated.

The decision could make it easier for convicts to challenge their implicit prosecution system.

The 5- 4 maturity opinion was written by Justice Elena Kagan, with Justice Amy Coney Barrett penning a dissent joined by judges Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch.

Kagan said that the law at issue, Section 1983, “ highly authorizes suit against state officials for the privation of any rights secured by the Constitution. ”

“ Read literally, ” she said, “ that language would apply to all of an internee’s constitutional claims. ”
