The American Civil Liberties Union, the ACLU of Oklahoma, and two newspapers filed a federal lawsuit today seeking to stop Oklahoma prison officials from selectively filtering what journalists can see during an execution. The lawsuit, filed on behalf of The Guardian and The Oklahoma Observer, follows the botched execution of Clayton Lockett in April during which prison officials blocked witnesses’ view when the procedure did not go as planned.
