"Sacramento Bee" quotes Criminal Justice Center Director and professor Robert Weisberg and Lecturer Jeremy Fogel

"It sounds like the judge is saying, 'You've made progress, but you're not there yet,' " Stanford law professor Robert Weisberg said. "I guess that this will just continue to get negotiated, and the state will make the adjustments that he wants."

"In light of the well-documented management issues in California's prison system generally, the court believes that the governor's office is in the best position to insist on an appropriate degree of care and professionalism in carrying out" executions, Fogel wrote.
