Attorneys for the state of Oklahoma say the drugs and procedures used to execute a death row inmate in April do not violate the constitutional rights of other prisoners awaiting execution.

In a federal court filing Wednesday, the attorney general's office asked a judge to dismiss all but three of the 21 death row inmates who are seeking to halt any attempt to execute them using the state's current lethal injection protocols.

The state says Oklahoma's protocols are under review and subject to change following the botched lethal injection of Clayton Lockett.

The state also denies many of the inmates' allegations, including that Oklahoma's current execution procedures present a risk of severe pain and suffering.
