ATLANTA (AP) -- The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Andrew DeYoung filed the lawsuit last week. DeYoung is on death row for killing his parents and 14-year-old sister in 1993. He maintains that
interested parties should be able to request a hearing on proposed
changes to the procedure.

A Department of Corrections spokeswoman on Monday declined to
comment.

Georgia's top prison official is considering a plan that would
allow the state to stick with a three-drug combination for lethal
injections by substituting a new drug for one seized by federal
regulators in March. The proposal would allow the state to use
pentobarbital instead of sodium thiopental.
