LAMBERTY

SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES


April 3, 1994

LAMBERTY, LYNN, AS NEXT FRIEND TO RICHARD LEE BEAVERS, PETITIONER
v.
TEXAS

Court of Criminal Appeals of Texas

Rehnquist, Blackmun, Stevens, O'Connor, Scalia, Kennedy, Souter, Thomas, Ginsburg.

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 certiorari is dismissed for want of jurisdiction.

Justice Stevens and Justice Ginsburg would deny the petition for a writ of certiorari.

Justice Blackmun dissenting:

Adhering to my view that the death penalty cannot be imposed fairly within the constraints of our Constitution, see my dissent in Callins v.

Collins, 510 U.S. , (1994), I would grant the application for stay of execution and the petition for certiorari and would vacate the death sentence in this case.
