Larry Flynt Presses For Missouri Death Penalty Secrets

AP) – Pornographic magazine publisher Larry Flynt is persevering in his legal fight to publicize details about Missouri’s execution methods. The move comes months after the state-sanctioned death of the white supremacist gunman who left him paralyzed.
A federal judge denied Flynt’s attempt to intervene in a 2013 lawsuit over Missouri’s largely secret execution protocol. The American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri, which represents the Hustler publisher, wants the St. Louis-based 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn the lower court ruling.
Oral arguments are scheduled for Wednesday.
Flynt was shot in 1978 by Joseph Paul Franklin, who targeted blacks and Jews in a three-year cross-country killing spree.
Franklin admitted to shooting Flynt but wasn’t charged. He was executed in November 2013, but the legal challenge filed in connection with his death persists.
