The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati  has upheld the constitutionality of Ohio's lethal injection protocol. 

The court says two inmates challenging the three-drug process failed to prove it poses an unconstitutional risk of pain and suffering. The court upheld a judge's ruling last year on arguments brought by condemned killers Alva Campbell and Raymond Tibbetts.
