Lawyers for an Arizona death-row inmate are fighting his upcoming execution, arguing in one filing that three newly appointed clemency board members are unprepared to consider his arguments for mercy and in another, that the state Department of Corrections is violating his constitutional rights.

They would like the new board members properly trained. The article is here.

My thoughts and prayers to Mr. Lopez and all involved.

(Is there a petition for him I can sign? Btw, why are sometimes no petitions at all for some people?)

His defense attorney walked out of the clemency hearing! She said:

"We believe, at this point, that this renders the appointment of the three new members null and void," said Henry. "That means you don't have the authority to take any action at this time." While the statutes allow the chairman to declare a quorum with just two members, she told Hernandez that because his appointment wasn't legal: "Our position is that you don't have the authority to declare a quorum."

One board member said:
"I don't think (Lopez will) be executed on the 16th," LaSota said.

A Maricopa County Superior Court judge ruled Monday that death-row inmate Samuel Lopez may not have received a fair state clemency-board hearing, but he added that he did not have the power to stop Wednesday's scheduled execution

Questions about the competency of Gov. Jan Brewer's recent appointees to the state clemency board prompted the Arizona Supreme Court to stay today's scheduled execution of death-row prisoner Samuel Lopez, saying he is entitled to a fair hearing before the board.

3 more minutes ...

This case touches me very much, not at last because of the horrible childhood he had to endure. I was searching the www. and found the following statement from his lawyer, Assistant Federal Public Defender Kelley Henry:

"it's not for the worst crime, it's for the worst lawyer," she said.

I am really speachless and very sad about the legal crimes the USA is practicing over and over and over again!
