Troy Davis Receives Stay of Execution

Troy Anthony Davis received a stay of execution Friday. He had been scheduled for execution on Monday, October 27. This is excellent news and a testament to the significant grassroots organizing conducted around Troy Davis.

“Upon our thorough review of the record, we conclude that Davis has met the burden for a stay of execution,” the court said in an order issued by Judges Joel Dubina, Rosemary Barkett and Stanley Marcus.

The judges called the stay “conditional” and said they want to hear more from Davis’ lawyers and state attorneys.

Davis must clear two difficult legal hurdles to win a new round of appeals."
