  • Drug mix-up not seen in earlier Oklahoma execution reports

    By Graham Lee Brewer Staff Writer gbrewer@oklahoman.com | Updated: 30 min ago

    Medical examiner reports on five men executed in Oklahoma in 2014 and 2013 show no indication of a recent drug mix-up that has led to a halt on all lethal injections in the state. All executions in the state have been put on hold while officials investigate why the drug, potassium acetate, was used to execute Charles Frederick Warner in January and almost used on Richard Eugene Glossip last month before his lethal injection was called off. This drug is not part of the three-drug lethal injection protocol in Oklahoma. Instead, the protocol calls for potassium chloride. Both drugs stop the heart in a high-enough dosage. The Oklahoman obtained medical examiner reports Friday on five men put to death in 2014 and 2013 and

  • New California law extends privacy rights to electronic data

    Updated: 1 hr ago

    NEW YORK (AP) — California now requires police to get a court order before they can search messages, photos and other digital data stored on phones or company servers in the nation's most-populous state. Civil-liberties advocates called the new law an important advance and said it highlights the need for similar protections at the national level. The California Electronic Communications Privacy Act was signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday. It's only the third of its kind in the U.S. While some states guarantee some of its protections, only Maine and Utah previously had comprehensive laws on the books, noted Hanni Fakhoury, senior staff attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The pressure is on Rep.

"I've talked with Paul Ryan. He's talking to people. I think he'd make a great speaker," McCarthy, R-Calif., said Friday morning as he entered a closed-door Republican meeting. "It's a big decision.

  • Nobel Peace Prize boosts struggling Tunisian democracy

    Updated: 1 hr ago

    TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — It was the fall of 2013 and Tunisia's newfound democracy was in grave danger. The assassination of a left-wing politician had prompted the opposition to walk out of the constitutional assembly. The government was paralyzed, the constitution unfinished and the country on the brink of war. In nearby Egypt, which had followed Tunisia in a democratic revolution, a coup had just overthrown the Islamist government, and some sectors in Tunisia wanted to follow suit. Then four civil society groups — the main labor union, the bar association, the employers' association and the human rights league — stepped into the fray.
