Re: Beunka Adams stay of execution lifted

Excellent, well-presented story, Jessica. One comment: Beunka Adams' legal team, now that the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has lifted District Judge Schneider's stay of execution, may file a writ (rather than an appeal) to the U.S. Supreme Court, and almost certainly will. The Supremes will likely deny the writ (because Adams has already been before the Supremes on a previous writ, which also failed, and normally successive writs are not permitted). If so, Adams is likely finished.
