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.

Painter told the judge they hope to bring pharmacology experts to testify to the dangers if the drug is not mixed or stored properly.

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.
