1 I. INTRODUCTION

2 The State of Nevada intends to execute Petitioner Scott Dozier during the week

3 of October 16, 2017.1 At the same time, the State has been unable to answer basic

4 questions about what drugs it intends to use in the execution and what execution

5 protocol is in place to effectuate the death sentence. At the hearing on July 27, 2017,

6 the prosecutor explained that he had not made contact with the Director of the

7 Nevada Department of Corrections (“NDOC”) to determine whether the State was

8 capable of effectuating a death sentence in a lawful manner. Under NDOC’s operating

9 procedures, Mr. Dozier will not receive notice of the lethal injection drugs that will

10 be used to kill him until seven days before the week of the execution. Ex. 5 at 19

11 (citing NDOC Execution Reference Directive (“ERD”) 103.02(B)).2 NDOC’s operating

12 procedures do not have any provision for disclosure of the relevant execution protocol

13 that will be used. See id.

14 These circumstances are patently insufficient for this Court to make a reliable

15 determination whether the execution warrants it has been, and will be, asked to sign

16 are enforceable, let alone whether the execution will proceed in a lawful manner. This

17 Court should grant Mr. Dozier an opportunity to conduct expedited discovery and an

18
1 It is Mr. Dozier’s understanding that a superseding execution warrant will
19 be signed by the Court at the hearing on August 16, 2017, setting the date of his
execution for the week of November 13, 2017.
20 2 NDOC’s execution protocol contains a cover sheet referenced as an “Execution
Index” containing Execution Reference Directives (“ERD”) and Execution Manual
21 Operational Procedures (“OP EM”). This motion refers to this document collectively
as NDOC’s “execution protocol” and to specific provisions of the protocol under the
respective ERD or OP EM section heading. The copies of this document that have
22 been released by NDOC are unsigned and do not indicate that they have been adopted
by the Director of NDOC or approved by the Nevada Board of Prisons Commissioners.
23 See below.
1
1 evidentiary hearing so that such a determination can be made in a reliable manner

2 rather than deferring litigation of that issue until the week before his execution.

3 NDOC has previously responded to Public Records Act (“PRA”) requests for

4 information regarding its use of drugs in lethal injections and its execution protocol.

5 See Ex. 8 (letter from Brian Connett, Public Information Officer, NDOC, to FPD with

6 exhibits (dated March 18, 2015), Ex. 5 (email from Brooke Keast, Public Information

7 Officer, NDOC, to the FPD with attachments (dated March 22, 2017)) see NRS

8 239.001, et seq. Through PRA requests, the Federal Public Defender (“FPD”) has

9 obtained copies of an unsigned execution protocol that was purportedly created in

10 2015 (and one from 2014) as well information regarding the lethal injection drugs in

11 NDOC’s possession that expired at the end of 2016. Ex. 5 at 55-58 (marked non-

12 confidential). The 2015 protocol specifies a two drug cocktail consisting of midazolam

13 and hydromorphone. These drugs are the same ones that were previously acquired

14 by NDOC that have expired. Id.3 In a separate lawsuit, NDOC Deputy Director John

15 Borrowman swore that NDOC had “disposed of all doses of midazolam because the

16 drug had an expiration date of July 31, 2016.” Ex. 16 (declaration of John Borrowman,

17 Deputy Director, NDOC (dated September 2, 2016)).

18 However, NDOC and its legal representatives have entirely failed to respond

19 to recent requests to provide the same information regarding the lethal injection

20

21
3 See Associated Press, Lack of Drugs is Latest Obstacle for Nevada Death
Penalty, U.S. News and World Report, August 21, 2016, available at
https://www.usnews.com/news/us/articles/2016-08-21/lack-of-drugs-is-latest-
22 obstacle-for-nevada-death-penalty (reporting that one of the two drugs making up the
Nevada lethal injection cocktail had expired and that the pharmaceutical company
23 that produces it refuses to provide the state any more).

2
1 drugs and execution protocol that will be used to kill Mr. Dozier. The FPD submitted

2 a PRA request on July 20, 2017, that was delivered to NDOC on July 24, 2017. Exs.

3 9 (PRA Request from David Anthony to Brooke Keast (dated July 20, 2017)), 10 (UPS

4 Delivery Confirmation (dated July 24, 2017)). NDOC has not acknowledged receipt of

5 the request or otherwise responded to it. NDOC is therefore in violation of the five-

6 day time period for providing a response to the request, NRS 239.0107(1), and is now

7 subject to an enforcement action. See NRS 239.011; DR Partners v. Board of County

8 Com’rs, Clark County, 116 Nev. 616, 629 n.4, 6 P.3d 465, 473 n.4 (2000). At the time

9 of the filing of this motion, NDOC has not complied with the PRA request.

10 NDOC’s representative from the attorney general’s office has also entirely

11 failed to respond to Mr. Dozier’s counsel regarding the drugs that it intends to use for

12 the execution. As soon as counsel for NDOC from the attorney general’s office was

13 identified, counsel for Mr. Dozier specifically inquired of her whether NDOC had any

14 information regarding the drugs that would be used and their source. Ex. 18 (email

15 from Thomas Ericsson to Ann McDermott (dated July 31, 2017)). No response was

16 received. On August 8, 2017, a second email message was sent to the deputy attorney

17 general inquiring whether the State intended to respond to counsel’s earlier inquiry.

18 Id. Again, no response has been received.

19 Mr. Dozier accordingly moves this Court to make a determination whether his

20 execution will proceed in a lawful manner.

21 II. ARGUMENT

22 Article 1, Section 6 of Nevada’s Constitution, the State’s analogue to the Eighth

23 Amendment of the United States Constitution, provides in pertinent part, “Excessive

3
1 bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor shall cruel or unusual

2 punishments be inflicted . . . .” Unlike the Eighth Amendment, Article 1, Section 6

3 proscribes punishments that are “cruel” even if they are not also “unusual.” Article 1,

4 Section 8(2), provides, “no person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without

5 due process of law.” Accord U.S. Const. amend. XIV.

6 Mr. Dozier, the State of Nevada, and this Court all have a compelling interest

7 in ensuring that his execution will proceed in a lawful manner. As explained below,

8 the information currently available to Mr. Dozier reveals that there is an intolerable

9 risk that his execution will be unconstitutionally cruel and unusual. See Glossip v.

10 Gross, 135 S. Ct. 2726, 2737 (2015).4 Moreover, the procedural protections contained

11 in NDOC’s proposed execution protocol are plainly insufficient to meet the minimum

12 requirements demanded by procedural due process principles of notice and an

13 opportunity to be heard. A federal court has recognized, in similar circumstances,

14 that procedural due process protections are necessary to effectuate the commands of

15 the Eighth Amendment:

16 A case can be made for a procedural due process
right to know ahead of time the critical aspects of the
intended execution. The Eighth Amendment protects
17 inmates from execution methods that pose a substantial
risk of serious pain if another method would significantly
18 reduce the risk. For this protection to have effect, inmates
must be able to challenge critical aspects of their own
19 execution. The ‘right to be heard before being condemned
to suffer grievous loss of any kind . . . is a principle basic to
our society.’ Joint Anti-Fascist Comm. v. McGrath, 341
20

21
4 Glossip includes consideration of whether any risk of substantial harm is
substantial “when compared to the known and available alternatives.” Glossip, 135
S. Ct. at 2737, citing Baze v. Rees, 553 U.S. 35, 61 (2008). Mr. Dozier does not concede
22 that this standard is required under the state constitution. Here, however, analysis
of this component of the standard cannot even begin until the method to be employed
23 by the State of Nevada in executing Mr. Dozier is made known.

4
1 U.S. 123, 168 (1951) (Frankfurter, J., concurring). The only
meaningful time that an inmate can challenge the method
of his own execution is before he is executed. ‘There is no
2 redo.’ Lopez v. Brewer, 680 F.3d 1084, 1092 [(9th Cir.
2012))] (Berzon, J., concurring in part and dissenting in
3 part from denial of rehearing en banc).

4 First Amendment Coalition of Arizona, Inc. v. Ryan, USDC No. 2:14-cv-01447-NVW,

5 Order [Granting in Part, and Denying in Part, Motion to Dismiss] at 14 (filed May

6 18, 2016), ECF No. 117 at 14.

7 There is no doubt that the public has a great interest in how its justice system

8 implements “the most serious punishment a state can extract from a criminal

9 defendant – the penalty of death.” California First Amendment Coalition v. Woodford,

10 299 F.3d 868, 873 (9th Cir. 2002). Because of the importance of the public debate in

11 the realm of the death penalty, the Ninth Circuit recognized that “the constitutional

12 principles that animate granting public access to governmental proceedings . . . carry

13 over to the state process of executing a condemned inmate within the confines of the

14 prison.” Id. at 874 (collecting cases).

15 The procedural history in this case shows that the answers to the questions

16 asked by this Court at the last two hearings, as well as those contained in the instant

17 motion, will not be forthcoming unless this Court grants leave to conduct expedited

18 discovery and conducts an evidentiary hearing. Mr. Dozier has filed a motion for leave

19 to conduct formal discovery contemporaneously with the filing of this motion. He

20 requests that this Court permit an adequate inquiry and issue a declaratory ruling

21 whether his execution will proceed in a lawful manner.

1 A. NDOC’s Prior Execution Protocol is Obsolete and its Proposed
Protocol Will Lead to a Substantial and Unjustified Risk of Causing
Cruel Pain and Suffering Due to the Impropriety of its Proposed
2 Two-Drug Cocktail Consisting of Midazolam and Hydromorphone
3 There have been significant changes relating to the availability of drugs for

4 lethal injections since Nevada conducted its last execution eleven years ago that

5 render NDOC’s prior execution protocol obsolete. Departments of corrections in states

6 that use capital punishment are no longer able to obtain the drugs that were used in

7 the three-drug cocktail that was previously used in Nevada.5 The Nevada Attorney

8 General’s Office was a co-signer of a letter to former United States Attorney General

9 Eric Holder expressing concerns regarding the inability of NDOC to acquire sodium

10 thiopental, the first drug used to induce anesthesia. See Exs. 11 (letter from state

11 attorneys general, including former Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez-

12 Masto to Eric Holder, Attorney General (dated January 25, 2011)), 12 (letter from

13 Eric Holder to James McPherson, Executive Director, National Association of

14 Attorneys General (dated March 4, 2011)). Subsequent federal litigation resulted in

15 a permanent injunction where departments of correction were prevented from

16 importing lethal injection drugs under the Food and Drug Cosmetic Act, 21 U.S.C. §

17 381(a), Beaty v. Food and Drug Administration, 863 F. Supp.2d 30 (D. D.C. 2012),

18 affirmed in part, vacated in part by Cook v. Food and Drug Administration, 733 F.3d

19 1 (D.C. 2013), and domestic supplies of the three-drug cocktail are also unavailable.

20 Ex. 21 at 5 (letter from Todd Cato, Director, Southwest Import District Office, Food

21

22 5 The three-drug cocktail consisted of sodium thiopental (a barbiturate) to
induce anesthesia; vecuronium bromide, a paralytic; and potassium chloride, to stop
23 the heart.

6
1 and Drug Administration, to Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Re: Entry No.

2 [Redacted]/Thiopental Sodium (dated April 20, 2017)) (“there are no FDA-approved

3 sodium thiopental products that are currently being marketed for any use.” (footnote

4 omitted)).

5 In response, several states, including Nevada, changed their execution

6 protocols to a two-drug cocktail consisting of midazolam and hydromorphone. Ex. 5

7 at 24-25. In other states where the two-drug cocktail was used for executions the

8 results have been catastrophic. See Botched Executions (citing botched executions

9 using midazolam in Arizona, Florida, Ohio, and Oklahoma, triggering three formal

10 state investigations, available at https://glossipvgross.com/botched-executions/). The

11 botches likely occurred because midazolam (a benzodiazepine) does not induce

12 anesthesia; rather, it is an amnesiac. Ex. 19 at 4-5 (declaration of David Waisel, M.D.,

13 (dated January 6, 2014)). Likewise, hydromorphone (an opioid) is a respiratory

14 suppressant, not an anesthetic. Id. at 5. If Mr. Dozier is not properly anesthetized

15 when the drug(s) arrest his breathing, he will experience intense feelings of

16 suffocation and pain. Id. at 4-5. Due to the execution botch in Arizona, its attorney

17 general’s office has entered into a stipulation agreeing to permanently cease using

18 midazolam or any other benzodiazepines in executions. Ex. 20 at 1-2 (Stipulated

19 Settlement Agreement and [Proposed] Order for Dismissal of Claim One, First

20

21

22

23

7
1 Amendment Coalition of Arizona, Inc. v. Ryan, Case No. 2:14-cv-01447-NVW, ECF

2 No. 152 (filed December 19, 2016)).6

3 Due to the impropriety of using midazolam and hydromorphone to induce

4 anesthesia, state departments of correction have had to improvise with drug dosages

5 during the execution itself, and, when that did not work, a judge was contacted in one

6 case during the execution to sort out the mess. If NDOC’s two-drug cocktail does not

7 work, this Court faces the prospect of being contacted the evening of the execution to

8 find out that Mr. Dozier cannot be anesthetized, and that he is alive and suffocating

9 on a gurney with IV lines inserted into his body via invasive surgical cut downs, with

10 an obsolete execution protocol instructing the Director’s execution team that they

11 cannot stop. This gruesome spectacle is fundamentally unfair to Mr. Dozier, the

12 Director, and his execution team. This Court is obligated to make an adequate inquiry

13 now in order to determine for itself that this will not happen.

14 B. NDOC’s Attempts to Obtain Lethal Injection Drugs Will Violate
State and Federal Laws thereby Creating a Substantial and
Unjustified Risk of Causing Cruel Pain and Suffering
15
State departments of corrections are not presently able to obtain execution
16
drugs from third party suppliers in a legal manner. The Deputy Director of the
17
Arkansas Department of Corrections provided an affidavit, dated October 14, 2015,
18
detailing his extensive efforts to obtain lethal injection drugs from various
19
manufacturers and suppliers with no success. Ex. 7 (affidavit of Rory Griffin, Deputy
20
Director, Arkansas Department of Corrections, with exhibits (dated October 14,
21

22
6Arizona also acknowledged that its “previous supplier of midazolam no longer
23 provides the drug for use in lethal injection executions . . . .” Id.

8
1 2015)). One month ago, the Division Director for the Arizona Department of

2 Corrections testified that he is unaware of any place in the United States where he

3 could obtain lethal injection drugs:

4 At the present time, I don’t know of anywhere in the United
States that we could acquire chemicals to do executions.
No one will – that I know of – will do business with anyone
5 in the Department of Corrections.
6 We also have a current license for importation of
drugs. The problem with that particular part is there’s also
7 rules with the FDA that prevent us from being able to
import the drugs. So I don’t know of anywhere right now
where we could acquire them.
8
Ex. 2 at 166 (testimony of Carson McWilliams, Division Director, Arizona
9
Department of Corrections, Guardian News & Media, LLC, et al. v. Ryan, USDC Case
10
No. 2:14-cv-02363-GMS (dated July 25, 2017)).
11
The pharmaceutical industry, suppliers of drugs, and pharmacies, including
12
prison pharmacies, are heavily regulated under state and federal law. Manufacturers
13
and distributors must obtain annual registrations to manufacture or distribute drugs.
14
21 U.S.C. § 822(a). Separate registrations are required for each place of business,
15
including registrations to distribute drugs to prisons. 21 U.S.C. § 822(e); United
16
States v. Clinical Leasing Service, Inc., 925 F.2d 120, 123 (5th Cir. 1991). A registrant
17
violates the law by distributing or dispensing a drug not authorized by its registration
18
to another registrant who is also not authorized to receive it. 21 U.S.C. § 842(a)(2);
19
NRS 639.2326. Under state law, a prison pharmacy is subject to regulations
20
promulgated by the Nevada State Board of Pharmacy, NRS 639.072, and it must be
21
a licensed pharmacy supervised by a prescribing practitioner. NRS 639.2326(1). The
22

23

9
1 designated prescribing practitioner must maintain the records of the prison

2 pharmacy. NRS 639.2326(2).

3 The State’s attempt to obtain lethal injections drugs will violate applicable

4 state and federal laws and regulations pertaining to the legal requirements of the

5 prison pharmacy and its potential suppliers. The Purchasing Division of the

6 Department of Administration (“DOA”) published an invitation to bid on behalf of

7 NDOC on September 2, 2016, seeking a vendor contract to obtain midazolam and

8 hydromorphone. Ex. 6 (State of Nevada, Purchasing Division, Invitation to Bid: 8487

9 For Pharmaceutical Drugs Used for Lethal Injections (Release Date: September 2,

10 2016) [hereinafter “ITB”]). Attachment C to the ITB, states, under additional

11 requirements:

12 1. The drug must be FDA-approved for human
consumption and provided in the sealed, original
manufacturer’s packaging.
13
2. Proposing vendors must provide certification that the
14 drug is authorized for use in an execution.

15 Id. at 25. Attachment D also requires the vendor to certify that applicable licensing

16 permits have been obtained and that the vendor will comply with all applicable state

17 and federal laws:

18 1. The vendor is a duly organized, validly existing, and in
good standing under the appropriate laws with full
power and authority to conduct the business that it
19 presently conducts in the State of Nevada.

20 2. The vendor has the legal power and right to enter into
and perform the contract.
21 3. Consummation of the transaction contemplated by the
NOA/contract will not violate any provision of law, or
22 any of the vendors governing documents (articles of
incorporation, partnership contract, etc.)
23

10
1 ....

5. The vendor has obtained all licenses and permits to
2 perform all of its requirements under the NOA/contract.
3 ...

4 Id. at 26.

5 The State’s conduct in this case demonstrates that it intends to obtain lethal

6 injection drugs outside of the lawful channels under state and federal law for doing

7 so. The ITB above expired on October 4, 2016, Ex. 6, at 1, and NDOC did not receive

8 one bid out of its 247 attempts to obtain one. Ex. 1, at 1 (Sandra Chereb, Nevada

9 receives no bids from companies to supply lethal injection drugs, Las Vegas Review

10 Journal, available at https://www.reviewjournal.com/local/local-nevada/nevada-

11 receives-no-bids-from-companies-to-supply-lethal-injection-drugs/). In the same

12 Review Journal article, the current Director of NDOC, James Dzurenda, represented,

13 “We are confident the Purchasing Division solicited thoroughly for vendors.” Id.

14 Despite the representations of the State to this Court that it will execute Mr.

15 Dozier, no new ITB has been published by the DOA Purchasing Division to obtain the

16 drugs. In light of the legal requirements discussed above, no vendor can make the

17 certifications required by the DOA to accept the contract and send the lethal injection

18 drugs. No vendor can certify that the drugs NDOC will obtain are “authorized for use

19 in an execution” given the regulatory framework and the vendor’s contractual

20 agreement with the manufacturer. The manufacturer itself will not provide the drugs

21

22

23

11
1 to NDOC or authorize their use in lethal injections.7 No vendor can certify that they

2 obtained a valid license consistent with state and federal law to sell lethal injection

3 drugs to NDOC. In short, it appears that NDOC intends to bypass the DOA entirely

4 or it intends to obtain the lethal injection drugs in a manner where the vendor does

5 not have, and therefore does not make, the certifications required by state and federal

6 law.

7 If the State has to violate applicable state and federal laws to obtain lethal

8 injection drugs then there is a substantial and unjustified risk that Mr. Dozier will

9 suffer a prolonged and torturous execution. If the State obtains the drugs outside of

10 the legal framework for doing so, there is a substantial risk of adulteration or

11 misbranding of the drugs. Cf. Beaty/Cook, supra (lethal injection drugs “appear” to

12 be “new,” in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 355, and misbranded under FDCA, in violation

13 of 21 U.S.C. § 352(f)(1, 2), when obtained outside provisions of federal law); Ex. 21 at

14 2-3 (letter from Todd Cato, Director, Southwest Import District Office, Food and Drug

15 Administration, to Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Re: Entry No.

16 [Redacted]/Thiopental Sodium (dated April 20, 2017)).8 It is a violation of the law to

17
7 Akorn Pharmaceuticals, a manufacturer of midazolam and hydromorphone,
18 has specifically informed NDOC that it does not authorize, and will not provide, the
drug to NDOC for lethal injections. Ex. 8 at 21 (email from Joe Bonaccorsi, General
19 Counsel for Akorn Pharmaceuticals, to Linda Fox (dated May 14, 2012). Sagent
Pharmaceuticals, another manufacturer of midazolam, has also informed NDOC that
20 it objects to, and does not authorize, the use of the drug for lethal injections. Ex. 8 at
20 (email from Michael Logerfo, Executive Vice President, to James “Greg” Cox,
former Director of NDOC (dated July 29, 2014).
21 8 Mr. Dozier is presently without information to determine whether the
potential or actual supplier of drugs to NDOC falls within the statutory exemption
22 for compounding pharmacies, but it appears that such an exemption would not apply
in the circumstances of the sending and receiving of lethal injections drugs. 21 U.S.C.
23 § 353a.

12
1 distribute or administer adulterated drugs, 21 U.S.C. § 351, NRS 585.520; to

6 C. NDOC’s Most Current Unsigned (Not Adopted) Execution Protocol
Presents an Unjustified Risk that Mr. Dozier’s Execution Will
Cause Cruel Pain and Suffering
7
In addition to not knowing the type or source of the drugs to be used, or the
8
lawfulness in acquiring the drugs as discussed in sections A and B above, there are
9
numerous other concerns which show that the State cannot perform a lawful
10 execution. Most notably, the State appears to have no formally adopted execution

11 protocol in place to govern and guide the execution. Pursuant to multiple public

12 records requests made both recently and over the course of several years, undersigned

counsel has yet to be provided by the State with a current, adopted execution
13
proposal. Counsel for Mr. Dozier possesses only outdated execution protocols – NDOC
14
“Execution Manuals” from 2004 and 2007 - and an unsigned, unadopted execution
15 protocol (contained in NDOC Execution Reference Directive 103), dated July of 2015,
16 along with a 2014 Execution Manual that is incomplete. See Exs. 3-5.9 Due to

17 document redactions in prior disclosures, it is unclear whether the execution

reference directives match the earlier dated execution manual (collectively,
18
referenced as the “execution protocol”).
19
Moreover, the 2015 unsigned protocol, even if it were to be adopted, is not
20
remotely adequate. It affords far too much discretion to the Director of NDOC. As an
21

22 9 The four-page “Execution Procedure” (EM 110) in the 2014 Execution Manual
that was part of the recent public records request materials provided to Mr. Dozier’s
23 counsel is completely blank. See Ex. 5 at 39-41.

13
1 example, the Director is free to select whatever lethal drug or drugs he desires and

2 merely has to consult with—as opposed to obtain the approval of—the State Health

Officer. NRS 176.355(2)(b); Ex. 5 at 19 (citing ERD 103.01(B). The 2015 protocol also
3
fails to specify the type, number, sequence, or dosage of the drugs to be used; fails to
4
require notice to Mr. Dozier of the lethal injection drug(s) until seven days before
5 execution; fails to require the presence of a physician at the execution (it is only
6 required that a physician be “invited”); fails to provide instruction to the IV team

7 regarding administration of the lethal chemicals; and fails to require any monitoring

of the inmate’s plane of anesthesia. Ex. 5 at 19-23. The 2015 protocol also provides
8
that “once the infusion of the chemical/ drugs has begun the execution cannot be
9
stopped.” Id. at 22 (citing ERD 103.07(C)(1)).
10
Moreover, undersigned counsel’s recent attempt to obtain a signed, adopted
11
execution protocol from the State has gone unacknowledged. See pp. 2-3, above. The
12 result is that there are many significant questions regarding the State’s intentions in

13 carrying out Mr. Dozier’s execution that present significant concerns and remain

unanswered. These unanswered questions include:
14
 does the State intend to inject a 1-drug, 2-drug, 3-drug, or
15 some other drug cocktail into Mr. Dozier’s body?

16  what dosages (e.g., in milligrams) of the drug, or drugs,
does the State intend to administer?
17
 what is the planned sequence and timing of
administration of the drugs if a multiple drug procedure
18 is to be utilized?

19  have the drug(s) the State intends to use in executing Mr.
Dozier ever been used before in a government-sanctioned
execution?
20
 have the drug(s) the State intends to use in executing Mr.
21 Dozier expired?

22  who determined or selected the drug(s) to be used in the
execution of Mr. Dozier?
23

14
1  were the drug(s) to be used selected following consultation
with, and approval from, the State Health Officer?
2  is use of the drug(s), i.e. their efficacy, for purposes of an
execution supported by available scientific research and
3 literature?

4  does the State intend to have an “execution team” assist
with Mr. Dozier’s execution? If so, what are the execution
team’s responsibilities?
5
 what are the training and qualification requirements for
6 execution team members?

7  does the State intend to have an “IV team” to assist with
Mr. Dozier’s execution? If so, what are the IV team
members’ responsibilities?
8
 what are the training and qualification requirements of
9 the IV team members?

 who will be primarily responsible for performing the
10 venipuncture during the execution and establishing and
ensuring a safe and proper IV line?
11

12
 in the event there is difficulty establishing an IV line in a
peripheral vein in Mr. Dozier’s arm(s), who will be
13 responsible for determining whether more invasive
measures, such as a cut-down procedure, will be
14 undertaken?

 who is to be present in the execution chamber with Mr.
15 Dozier during the execution process?

16  will the State be utilizing a cardiac monitor during the
execution?
17
 who will be responsible for attaching the cardiac monitor,
if one is used, and confirming that it is functioning
18 properly?

19  if a multiple-drug procedure is being utilized, will the
sedative or anesthetic (presumably administered first)
reliably induce a sufficient plane of anesthesia?
20
 does the State intend to have an appropriately trained and
21 qualified medical care professional present at the
execution for purposes of monitoring Mr. Dozier’s plane of
22 anesthesia?

23

15
1  is the State requiring the presence of a physician at Mr.
Dozier’s execution?
2  is the State requiring the presence of a coroner at Mr.
Dozier’s execution?
3
 who will be the individual responsible for determining and
4 pronouncing Mr. Dozier’s death?

That all such questions remain unanswered is extremely disconcerting given that
5
Mr. Dozier’s execution is currently scheduled to take place in approximately eight
6
weeks. The unanswered questions demonstrate the need for an adequate inquiry and
7
a declaratory ruling by this Court as to whether the State of Nevada is prepared to
8
carry out an execution that comports with state and federal law. As matters currently
9
stand, the State of Nevada has not shown it can ensure these fundamental,
10
constitutional guarantees to Mr. Dozier. Under the circumstances presented, the
11
declaratory ruling Mr. Dozier seeks from this Court is wholly warranted and justified.
12
III. CONCLUSION
13
For the foregoing reasons, Mr. Dozier requests this Court, following expedited
14
discovery and an evidentiary hearing, issue a declaratory ruling regarding whether

CARSON CITY — Nevada prison officials said Friday the state will have to explore its options

to carry out executions after it received no bids from pharmaceutical companies to supply

drugs for lethal injections.
More Columnists
The state issued 247 requests for proposals on Sept. 2 after its stockpile of at least one drug
used in executions had expired. Not one response was received.

“We are confident the Purchasing Division solicited thoroughly for vendors,” James
Dzurenda, director of the Nevada Department of Corrections, said in a statement.

“Now we will work closely with the attorney general, the governor and the Legislature to
examine our options and decide the best course of action moving forward.”

Dzurenda in August told the state Board of Prison Commissioners chaired by Gov. Brian
Sandoval that one of two drugs needed to execute a condemned inmate by lethal injection
has expired and the drug company Pfizer refused to provide more supplies.
Nevada has used the drugs midazolam and hydromorphone to administer a lethal injection.
Both are manufactured by Pfizer. Du

“Pfizer makes its products to enhance and save the lives of the patients we serve,” the
company said in a statement issued earlier this year. “Consistent with these values, Pfizer
strongly objects to the use of its products as lethal injections for capital punishment.”

The Nevada Legislature in the 2015 session approved spending $858,000 to build a new
execution chamber at Ely State Prison, to replace the chamber in the now-closed Nevada
State Prison in Carson City.

Officials have said that project is scheduled to be completed by Nov. 1 and the space will be
used for storage and as an attorney-inmate meeting area if no executions are scheduled to The Arts Factory

Under state law, Nevada is required to use lethal injection for executions. Changing the

Nevada is not alone in its inability to acquire drugs used to kill condemned inmates. In a
recent article, Jennifer Horne with the Council of State Governments said dozens of states Howl ' O Ween Costume Pawty
face the same dilemma. Some states are changing their protocols to use different drugs and Pet'ographique

some are trying to obtain drugs from foreign suppliers.

“Many states will have to change their method of execution, which means regulatory changes Search for... Search
that have to be approved and lengthy court challenges,” Richard Dieter, executive director of
the Death Penalty Information Center, told Horne. “In many states, this could take months, if
not years, delaying executions.”

The last execution occurred at the Nevada State Prison on April 26, 2006, when Daryl Mack
was put to death. Mack was executed for the rape and murder of a Reno woman, Betty Jane Tweets
May, in 1988.

Section I.

AUTHORITY - NEVADA REVISED STATUTES

NRS 176.345 Proceedings when conviction carries death penalty.
1. When a judgement of death has been pronounced, a certified copy of the judgment of
conviction must be forthwith executed and attested in triplicate by the clerk under the seal of
the court. There must be attached to the triplicate copies a warrant signed by the judge,
attested by the clerk, under the seal of the court, which:
a. Recites the fact of the conviction and judgment;
b. Appoints a week, the first day being Monday and the last day being Sunday, within
which the judgment is to be executed, which must not be less than 60 days nor more than
90 days from the time of judgment; and
c. Directs the sheriff to deliver the prisoner to such authorized person as the director of the
department of prisons designates to receive the prisoner, for execution. The prison must
be designated in the warrant.
2. The original of the triplicate copies of the judgment of conviction and warrant must be filed
in the office of the county clerk, and two of the triplicate copies must be immediately
delivered by the clerk to the sheriff of the county. One of the triplicate copies must be
delivered by the sheriff, with the prisoner, to such authorized person as the director of the
department of prisons designates, and is the warrant and authority of the director for the
imprisonment and execution of the prisoner, as therein provided and commended. The
director shall return his certified copy of the judgment of conviction to the county clerk of the
county in which it was issued. The other triplicate copy id the warrant and authority of the
sheriff to deliver the prisoner to the authorized person designated by the director. The final
triplicate copy must be returned to the county clerk by the sheriff with his proceedings
endorsed thereon.

NRS 176.355 Execution of death penalty: Method; time and place; witnesses.
1. The judgment of death must be inflected by an injection of lethal drug.
2. The director of the department of prisons shall:
a. Execute a sentence of death within the week, the first day being Monday and the last day
being Sunday, that the judgement is to be executed, as designated by the district court.
The director may execute the judgment at any time during that week if a stay of execution
is not entered by a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
b. Select the drug or combination of drugs to be used for the execution after consulting with
the state health officer.
c. Be present at the execution.
d. Notify those members of the immediate family of the victim who have, pursuant to NRS
176.357, requested to be informed of the time, date and place scheduled for the
execution.
e. Invite a competent physician, the county coroner, a psychiatrist and not less than six
reputable citizens over the age of 21 years to be present at the execution. The director

2
Case 2:04-cv-00868-RCJ -GWF Document 75-4 Filed 12/15/08 Page 5 of 20

shall give preference to those eligible members or representatives of the immediate
family of the victim who requested, pursuant to NRS 176.357, to attend the execution.
3. The execution must take place at the state prison.
4. A person who has not been invited by the director may not witness the execution.
NRS 176.357 Request for notification of execution of death penalty; request to attend.
1. If after a conviction for murder a judgment of death has been pronounced, each member of
the immediate family of the victim who is 21 years of age or older may submit a written
request to the director to be informed of the time, date and place scheduled for the execution
of the sentence of death. The request for notification may be accompanied by a written
request to attend or nominate a representative to attend the execution.
2. As used in this section, "immediate family" means persons who are related by blood,
adoption or marriage, within the second degree of consanguinity or affinity.

NRS 176.365 Director of department of corrections to make return on death warrant.
After the execution, the director of the department of prisons must make a return upon the death
warrant to the court by which the judgment was rendered, showing the time, place, mode and
manner in which it was executed.

NRS 176.495 New warrant generally.
1. If for any reason a judgement of death has not been executed, and it remains in force, the
court in which the conviction was had must, upon the application of the attorney general or
the district attorney of the county in which the conviction was had, cause another warrant to
be drawn, signed by the judge and attested by the clerk under the seal of the court, and
delivered to the director of the department of prisons.
2. The warrant must state the conviction and judgment and appoint a week, the first day being
Monday and the last day being Sunday, within which the judgement is to be executed. The
first day of that week must be not less than 15 days nor more than 30 days after the date of
the warrant. The director shall execute a sentence of death within the week the judgment is
to be executed, as designated by the district court. The director may execute the judgment at
any time during that week if a stay of execution is not entered by a court of appropriate
jurisdiction.
3. Where sentence was imposed by a district court composed of three judges, the district judge
before whom the confession or plea was made, or his successor in office, shall designate the
week of execution, the first day being Monday and the last day being Sunday, and sign the
warrant.

Appropriate medical services personnel will perform the actual venipuncture. Venipuncture will
occur into the veins of both arms. Once the venipunctures are completed, the needles will be
taped securely into place and will be checked for patency. If the venipuncturist is unable to find

be administered at a rapid rate. Once started, the lethal injections will continue until all three
syringes of two sets are administered and emptied. The first syringe of the first set and the first
syringe of the second set will be administered simultaneously. The second syringe of both sets
will be administered simultaneously. The third syringe of both sets will be administered
simultaneously.

Once the lethal injections have been administered, the attending physician or designee and
coroner shall then determine whether it was sufficient to cause death. If the previous lethal
injections are determined to be insufficient to cause death, the third set oflethal injections shall
be administered.

Dear Director Cox,

Sagent Pharmaceuticals, Inc. sources, manufactures, markets and sells throughout the United States a
wide range of drug products. Sagent is aware that some of the drug products it sells, including Propofol,
Midazolam, Vecuronium Bromide and various other drugs might be used by your department in
connection with capital punishment activities, including lethal injection.

All of Sagent's products, like all drug products approved for distribution in the United States by the FDA,
are to be used only according to each products' approved indications. Sagent does not approve any
"off-label" use of its drug products, and specifically objects to any use of its drug products in connection
with any capital punishment activities, including lethal injection, by your department or by any
governmental entity.

Therefore, any procurement or use by your department of any Sagent drug product in connection with
any capital punishment activity, including lethal injection, or any other use not approved by the FDA and
indicated on the product's label, is prohibited.

To the extent any Sagent product is of a type that may be used in connection with any capital
punishment activity but is required by your department for the treatment of patients in accordance with
such product's approved indications, we would make such product available only with your
department's assurances that the product would not be used for any capital punishment activity.

We are available to discuss this matter further to ensure that none of Sagent's products are used by
your department in connection with capital punishment activities. Please contact me at
mlogerfo@saqentpharma.com or by telephone at 847-908-1608 as necessary at your convenience.

Very truly yours,

Gregory Smith - Re: Chemicals for execution

From: Robert Bannister
To: Gregory Smith
Date: 8/3/2010 12:47 PM
Subject: Re: Chemicals for execution

Greg,

I believe the order is wrong as listed.

1. The first medication given ls the barbiturate (Sodium Thiopental)to Induce sleep. It is provide as 500 mg
(1/2 gram) or 1000 mg. (one gram). Either of these is mixed in 20 ml. or sterile water.

2. The second medication is the muscle relaxant pancuronium bromide {also call be the old brand name
Pavulon) to prevent movement. It comes as either 1 mg/ml, or 2 mg/ml.

3. The third medication Is KCL (potassium chloride). It is usually packaged as 20 or 40 meq in 15 ml of sterile
water.

The proper order should be:

1. 3 grams of Sodium Pentothal
2. 50 milligrams (mg) of Pancuronlum bromide (Pavulon)
3. 240 milliequivalents (mEq) of KCL (potassium chloride

These units (grams, milligrams, milllequivalents) used above refer to the weight (actual amount) of the
medication, and are more accurate and applicable than using the volume of fluid (ml, or milliliters).
When the amount (by weight) of the medications listed above, are mixed with the sterile water for injection as
directed, the volume of the sterile water may vary, but the actual amount of the medication will be correct.

>>>Gregory Smith 8/3/2010 10:47 AM>>>
While going through the execution manual I discovered a discrepancy. One page (that I believe is from the old
manual) states that the chemicals and amounts are as follows;

1. 10ml Pavulon
2. 140ml Sodium Thiopental
3. 140 Potassium Chloride

What I believe to be the new chemicals and amounts (Kentucky model) are as follows;

1. SOmg Pancuronium Bromide
2. 3 grams Sodium Thiopental
3. 240 meq Potassium Chloride

I have a call in to the Medical Director of Kentucky to confirm (was sworn to shed theirs when I was done). Is
this second set of chemicals lethal? Thanks, Greg S.
