LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Six death row inmates are asking a court to order the Arkansas Department of Correction to turn over documents about lethal injection drugs under a public records request.

Attorney Jeff Rosenzweig filed paperwork Monday in Pulaski County asking a court to compel the correction department to release public records under the Freedom of Information Act. The inmates are seeking records containing information about the origin, history and quality of lethal injection drugs.

According to Rosenzweig's lawsuit, correction spokeswoman Shea Wilson responded to their public records request by saying the department didn't have any new information to release under the lethal injection law.

Wilson said Tuesday that the department is reviewing the lawsuit.
