Oregon Death Penalty
Oregon Supreme Court Justices, including Chief Justice Thomas A. Balmer, left, Justice Martha Lee Walters, Justice Jack L. Landau and Justice Richard C. Baldwin listen to arguments by attorney Anna Joyce into whether Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber has the authority to prevent the execution of Gary Haugen during a hearing in Eugene on Thursday, March 14, 2013. Gov. John Kitzhaber, who opposes capital punishment, regretted letting two other inmates be put to death and said he won't allow it to happen again. Haugen argues that Kitzhaber exceeded his authority when he issued a temporary reprieve for the two-time murderer in 2011, delaying the execution until the governor leaves office.
