A federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., on Monday denied the Justice Department’s efforts to lift a temporary halt on four federal executions.

The department had appealed a trial judge’s ruling last month that ordered a stay of the executions while a separate legal challenge to the Trump administration’s new lethal injection protocol plays out.

The article goes on to state the following:

The longest running of the four lawsuits was filed 16 years ago, and the cases went dormant during the Obama administration amid a shortage of lethal injection drugs.

Attorney General William Barr announced in July that federal executions would resume using a new lethal injection that utilizes a single drug, pentobarbital.
