Has FDLE followed up the execution protocol, as required?

The FDLE was only required to turn over training logs, manuals, or protocol
having to do with their involvement in the execution process and logs or record
books regarding the maintenance, storage, use and disposal of pentobarbital. The
FDLE only disclosed training logs for 3 dates in 2010, yet certified to the lower
court that it provided all the records responsive to the court?s order. Again, this
was not the extent of the information requested from FDLE. Importantly, FDLE is
an integral part of the lethal injection process because the agents are supposed to
serve as independent observers. Further, FDLE is required to confirm that all
lethal chemicals are correct and current, including compliance with state and federal law
