Death Penalty on hold in Tennessee

A federal court judge in Tennessee has ruled that Tennessee's new procedure for lethal injection is cruel and unusual punishment.

I think it's enough that they are lethally injecting someone to count as cruel and unusual punishment, but I can be content with her reason in this case.
