Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison, 1.27.16


It most probably goes without saying that we are still stunned by the execution of Christopher Brooks last week. We discussed the potential repercussions for others,  and what, if anything, could be learned from this tragedy. The importance of staying on top of one’s case was a recurring topic for all of us.

Jan

Friends,


We are sad to announce that the State of Alabama took the life of Christopher E. Brooks tonight at Holman Prison. Our thoughts and prayers are with Christopher Brooks’ family members, friends and his valiant attorneys who took him on during the last few months after Chris had fired his previous attorney and had consequently missed a deadline. We thank them!

Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison, 1.20.16

Christopher Brooks’ petition for an emergency stay, so that he could be part of the Midazolam litigation in April, was denied by the Eleventh Circuit Court of Criminal Appeals.  This petition is now before the US Supreme Court. The petition to the Alabama Supreme Court asking for a stay based on the recent ruling by the US Supreme Court which found the Florida sentencing scheme (similar to ours) unconstitutional was also denied.
