Oregon Supreme Court hears death penalty case at Oregon Law
The Oregon Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the cases of State v. Everett and Haugen v. Kitzhaber during its annual visit to the University of Oregon School of Law. Below, please find video of each case.
The case of State v. Everett arguments were heard at 9:00 a.m. Defendant Ronald Alan Everett has been granted review of a Court of Appeals decision affirming trial court decisions denying his motion for judgment of acquittal of both solicitation to commit aggravated murder and solicitation to commit assault in the second degree, and denying his motion to strike certain testimony by a state's witness.
The case of Haugen v. Kitzhaber arguments took place at 10:30 a.m. Oregon death row inmate Gary Haugen is fighting Governor John Kitzhaber for his right to die. The governor has granted the twice-convicted murderer a reprieve. Haugen, however, does not want it.
