TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A lawyer for death row inmates told Florida Supreme Court justices a law meant to quicken the process of carrying out death sentences unfairly limits the opportunity for condemned prisoners to introduce new evidence.

The state says the act only mandates that the process is carried out in a reasonable amount of time.

Attorney Martin McClain told The Associated Press on Monday the argument is whether or not the legislation “interferes with the judicial process that ensures reliability” of convictions and death sentences.

The Supreme Court did not indicate when it would issue a ruling in the case.

One area of contention has been a requirement for the Supreme Court to provide the governor a list of inmates that are ready for warrants. Assistant attorney general Carol Dittmar said it hasn’t affected when warrants are signed.
