Breaking news: The Florida Supreme Court has issued an indefinite Stay of Execution for Michael Lambrix. Mike was to be executed on Thursday, February 11, 2016. The order came hours after the court heard oral arguments that focused on the impact of a U.S. Supreme Court decision earlier this month that struck down the state’s death-penalty sentencing system.

UPDATE March 9, 2017: Florida Supreme Court has lifted the stay on Mike's death warrant!

Note from Mike

Thank you for all your comments, both on my blog and my website, and the cards and letters I received, and I am both touched and grateful for all the thoughts and prayers. Some of you remained confused as to why I continue to write "death watch" blogs when the court gave me a stay of execution on February 2, 2016. The reason I contiue to write is because I am still on death watch - I only received a temporary stay of execution pending review by the Florida Supreme Court. At anytime the court could rule against me and a new execution date will be scheduled.  But to be clear, I am still under an active death warrant and the threat of execution hangs over me. Hopefully the court will rule favorably as if I win this legal issue then all prisoners on Florida's death row will win too. But in coming days, or weeks, if the court rules against me then a new execution date will be scheduled.
