This and That

Good news and bad news: the Nevada Supreme Court has vacated the death penalty for Herbert Wesley, based upon an invalid aggravating circumstance, and has ordered a new penalty trial; but an execution date for the first week of February 2010 has been set for death row inmate Robert McConnell based upon his Washoe County conviction.

Note - the Sun article states that Nevada's last execution was in 1996.  This is not accurate.  Mack was executed in 2006.

The Nevada Supreme Court has approved a revised code of judicial conduct.  It does not appear that the revisions have been posted to the Nevada Supreme Court's website.
