Everyone knows that the wheels of justice turn slowly, but the wait in this case is killing me! (No pun intended in this death penalty case). It has been one month now since United States District Court Judge Jose Martinez ruled that Florida’s death penalty scheme is unconstitutional. (See my previous post dated June 23, 2011). After Judge Martinez issued the Order, the State of Florida, through the Office of the Attorney General, filed a motion asking the Court to reconsider the decision. The Court has yet to rule on the motion. It seems pretty unlikely that the Court will grant the State’s motion. The Court will probably deny the State’s motion, paving the way for the State to appeal the decision to the Eleventh Circuit, as Attorney General Pamela Bondi said will be done in a report dated June 28. Let’s just get the appeal moving already so that the case can make it’s way to the US Supreme Court!
