    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Several Arkansas death row inmates are asking to have their appeal dismissed in a case involving the state's public records law.

    The inmates' lawyer, Jeff Rosenzweig, filed a motion to dismiss their appeal in Pulaski County Circuit Court on Thursday.

    Rosenzweig previously filed a conditional notice of appeal in the Freedom of Information Act case in April after a judge said the information the inmates were seeking was exempt from disclosure under the act.

    The inmates had initially asked the court to order the Arkansas Department of Correction to turn over documents about the drugs the state planned use to execute them.

    The same inmates involved in the public records lawsuit are now involved in a separate lawsuit challenging the state's new execution law.
