Attorney General Peterson Applauds Judge’s Decision to Dismiss ACLU Lawsuit

Attorney General Doug Peterson applauds today’s decision by Judge Colborn, “The opinion does a thorough analysis of important Nebraska case law supporting the dismissal of the ACLU’s claims.”  The ACLU, on behalf of Nebraska’s death row inmates, requested the Court override the will of the people expressed in the referendum. Those who have committed brutal murders were legally sentenced to death, which sentences were upheld by the Nebraska Supreme Court. This office is committed to our legal duty to enforce the death sentences ordered by Nebraska’s Courts.
