Legal challenges were being fought in multiple federal courts on Tuesday on whether to allow Tuesday’s scheduled execution of convicted murderer Lisa Montgomery, the only woman on federal death row in the United States. It is one of three executions the U.S. Department of Justice had scheduled for the final full week of the administration of Republican President Donald Trump’s administration. Whether it proceeds will likely fall to the U.S. Supreme Court, whose conservative majority has previously allowed all of Trump’s 10 previous executions to proceed.
