Thanks to the lawyers at Sidley Austin for obtaining a final trial court order on March 27 barring the importation of unapproved drugs used for lethal injection. Here is the court’s memorandum opinion, and here is the case docket, in Donald Edward Beaty v. FDA, et al.., Civ. No. 11-289, (D.D.C., March 27, 2012) (Leon, J.).

I anticipate an appeal by the government.
