Issue: Whether, because the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit issued a stay of execution without finding that the death row inmate has a significant possibility of success on the merits, the Supreme Court should summarily vacate the lower court's stay of execution.
Application (20A4) granted by the Court. The application to vacate the stay of execution entered by the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit on July 2, 2020, presented to Justice Kavanaugh and by him referred to the Court, is granted.
Justice Ginsburg, Justice Breyer, Justice Sotomayor, and Justice Kagan would deny the application.
