U.S. district court clemency. (Sentence).
Workman v. Summers. 136 F.Supp.2d 896 (M.D.Tenn. 2001). A Tennessee
death row inmate brought a [section] 1983 action against state officials
alleging he was denied due process in the state's clemency process.
The district court denied the inmate's motion for a temporary
restraining order staying his execution. The district court held that
the inmate had received minimum due process in his clemency proceeding,
and that the decision to grant clemency was a decision for the governor
and was not reviewable by the federal district court. (Tennessee)
