10 Jul 2020    

Professor Eric Berger was the lead amicus for an amicus brief that was filed to accompany a cert petition in the U.S. Supreme Court regarding In re Federal Bureau of Prisons’ Execution Protocol Cases (Roane v. Barr). It challenges the legality of the federal government’s new execution protocol. The amicus brief focuses on two administrative law issues, contending that the government failed to follow proper administrative procedures when it adopted the new execution protocol.
