Glossip v. Gross

On April 29, 2015, the United States Supreme Court heard arguments on behalf of three Oklahoma prisoners who were challenging the state's three-drug lethal injection protocol, which calls for the use of midazolam. On June 29, 2015, in a 5-4 decision, the Court upheld the use of midazolam in Oklahoma's lethal injection procedure.
