Oregon: Judge Rules Reprieve Can be Rejected!

Gary Haugen - whom we have discussed previously, here -  is reported to have "won a legal battle" in that Senior Judge Timothy P. Alexander has ruled that Haugen can "reject" Governor Kitzhaber's reprieve of his own execution! As such, the reprieve is "ineffective." Of course, the ruling "is expected to initiate new adversarial proceedings." We suspect that, when all is said and done, that no appellate court is going to assert / imply / suggest / or even allow much room for the notion that there is a "right" to be executed. See story here.

See full text of the judge's ruling here.
