Supreme Court stays execution of Duane Buck in Texas

Today the Supreme Court stayed the execution in Texas of Duane Buck. Such stays are rare by the Supreme Court. I will look for the court’s opinion, and plan to post it when I do.

ADDENDUM: Thanks, Jeff Gamso, for your comment and confirmation that there is no written opinion, which makes sense in part when considering that time is of the essence to issue a stay order rather than waiting for the hours needed to draft an opinion. However, an eventual Supreme Court opinion might be of assistance for further court proceedings. I found the court’s stay order here.
