LINCOLN, Neb.--The Nebraska Supreme Court has set a March 6 execution date for a death-row inmate. The execution would be the first in Nebraska since 1997, and its first by lethal injection.
The order came two days after Attorney General Jon Bruning's office filed documents with the high court saying a legal challenge by the inmate's lawyer was frivolous. The lawyer for inmate Michael Ryan had challenged the state's method of obtaining one of three drugs needed to carry out the sentence.

The Nebraska Department of Correctional Services announced in November that it had obtained sodium thiopental, one of three drugs needed to carry out executions by lethal injection, from Swiss company Naari AG. The drug is no longer manufactured in the United States and is in scarce supply worldwide

"The order came two days after Attorney General Jon Bruning's office filed documents with the high court saying a legal challenge by the inmate's lawyer was frivolous."

99 % of all death penalty appeals are frivolous!
" Closure? Closure is a misused word in the English language.  There is no such thing as closure for the family of a murder victim.  There will never be any closure for the death of our loved ones until we are dead ourselves.  The families have a lifetime sentence of anguish and sadness."

Hopefully come March 6th, Nebraska will be able to use its remodeled execution facility in the basement of the main building of the Nebraska State Penitentiary for its first lethal injection execution.  The electric chair has been dismantled and put into mothballs, along with the associated electrical apparatus.  A lethal injection gurney has been installed in the death chamber.  The single execution viewing room has been divided into two smaller rooms, so that the victim's family and inmate's family members can be kept separate.
