One less hurdle for Nevada's death penalty. :(

One less hurdle for Nevada's death penalty.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has dropped its appeal challenging the lethal injection process.

The ACLU brought the case on behalf of William Castillo, on death row for the murder of a Las Vegas school teach in 1995. Castillo has his own federal appeal in the works.

The ACLA says a recent Supreme Court decision on lethal injections would make it difficult to win its case.

Lethal injection appeal dropped

A state Supreme Court case challenging Nevada's use of lethal injection to execute inmates has been voluntarily dropped by the American Civil Liberties Union and the state attorney general's office.

The case involves William Castillo, who was convicted of murder and sentenced to death in the 1995 slaying of a retired Las Vegas school teacher.

There is no longer a stay of possible executions in Nevada although none are scheduled.
