Burrell Ellis committee recommends suspension

The panel comprising Attorney General Sam Olens, Rockdale County CEO Richard Oden and Clayton County Commission Chairman Jeff Turner found that the indictments against DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis relate to his duties in office and recommended his suspension.

Governor Deal’s office said he would make a decision by the end of the week.

Fulton County Judge Issues Stay of Execution

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Gail Tusan issued a stay of execution to prevent the state from executing Warren Lee Hill. The stay is intended to allow Judge Tusan to hear arguments that the State keeping secret details about its procurement of pentobarbitol for the execution violates the Constitution.

Robyn Painter represented Hill in Court today.

“They’re asking us to accept their word for it that this drug is okay, when in fact without the information about who the pharmacist is, where the supply of drugs come from, how it was manufactured —  we actually have no real information about what this drug is,” Painter says.

Representing the state was Sabrina Graham. She told the judge the state analyzed the purity of the drug.

But because the motion was filed late on Friday, Judge Tusan wanted more time for the hearing.

The hearing will continue on July 18 at 8 am. Meanwhile, the judge issued a stay of execution.

Brian Kammer, Hill’s other attorney, says the state law that keeps the secrecy of the manufacturer supplying the drug Pentobarbital is not only unconstitutional, but potentially dangerous.

“As things stand, we know nothing about it. Given the history of compounding pharmacies in this country, there’s a substantial likelihood that it’s contaminated or otherwise impure or ineffective,” Kammer says.

Gov. Deal: State Revenues up 2.4 Percent for June
