WA Supreme Court Rules

The WASHINGTON state Supreme Court rules the use of capital punishment to be unconstitutional. The ruling, which makes the Evergreen State the 20th where courts or legislatures have abolished or overturned capital punishment, commutes the sentences of the eight men currently on the state’s death row to life in prison (NEW YORK TIMES).
