From the SCOTUS decision:

The application to recall and stay the mandate and for stay of execution of sentence of death, presented to JUSTICE SCALIA, and by him referred to the Court, is denied. The application for stay of execution of sentence of death, presented to JUSTICE SCALIA, and by him referred to the Court, is denied. The petition for a writ of habeas corpus is denied.

Texas has over 3 hours to send this scumbag back to his Maker.

Long Live Justice Scalia!!

No, SCOTUS issued no stay. They denied a stay by a vote of 5-4. Opinions here: http://www.scotusblog.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/medellin-opinion-8-5-08.pdf

The “delay” (which was not a formal stay at all) was due to those dissents being written.

Check the links on Malkin’s site. Seems to be confusion.
