The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Ramirez v. Collier, a case challenging a denied request by the state of Texas for a death row inmate to have his pastor present with hands on the inmate and audible prayer during the execution. John Ramirez’s execution was scheduled for 2017 but was delayed after he filed a petition arguing ineffective counsel. Execution was then set for September 2020. In July 2020, he complained that Texas would not allow a spiritual adviser in the death chamber, and filed a federal lawsuit arguing his religious freedom rights were violated because his pastor could not be there with him. His execution was again delayed, and all parties agreed to dismiss the lawsuit. In April 2021, Texas changed its policy to allow spiritual advisers to be present during an execution. Texas rescheduled Ramirez’s execution to September 8, 2021. In early August 2021, he filed another federal lawsuit alleging his religious rights were being violated. close
