Death penalty: execution of minors
Stevens dissented from the Court's denial of a stay of the execution of an individual who was 17 when he committed the capital offense, believing the Court should revisit the issue of whether it was constitutional to impose the death penalty for crimes committed when the offender was a minor. Ginsburg also filed a dissent. The Court ruled three years later that the Eighth Amendment prohibited capital punishment when the offender was under 18, in Roper v. Simmons, 543 U.S. 551 (2005).
