10:41: The Supreme Court has rejected Troy Davis’s appeal and prison officials report that the execution of Troy Davis is proceeding within "half an hour."

7:30: The Supreme Court of the United States has issued a temporary reprieve for Troy Davis. It’s very unclear what the reprieve means. Davis could still be executed at any minute or the SCOTUS could issue a full stay.

The State of Georgia is preparing to execute Troy Anthony Davis tonight in one of the most high-profile executions in the United States in years. Davis is scheduled to be killed by lethal ejection at 7 pm. EDT, one day after the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles rejected clemency. Activists are holding vigils coast to coast. Democracy Now! is airing a special broadcast from outside the prison in Jackson, Georgia, from 6 to 8 pm. EDT, where hundreds of protesters have already assembled.
