I'm surprised it was unanimous

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously Monday that death-row inmates can sue to claim the proposed method of their execution would violate their Eighth Amendment rights not to face cruel and unusual punishment, even if they have exhausted all other appeals. In case you were wondering, Alabama Attorney General Troy King isn't much of a fan of decisions like that, which you probably never would have guessed based on his entirely reasonable reaction to the American Bar Association's recent report on flaws in the state's capital punishment system.

Just another example of wild-eyed liberal activist justices like Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas at work. Next thing you know, they'll be using the Internet.
