COLUMBUS, Ohio — An agreement has been reached over death row inmates' subpoenas of Board of Pharmacy information about drugs used for lethal injection in Ohio.

At issue were attempts by inmates' lawyers to find out more about the state's lethal injection process, which now calls for two drugs Ohio doesn't have and which may only be available in specialty doses created by compounding pharmacies.

Lawyers for Attorney General Mike DeWine said the request, including pharmacy inspection records, was too broad and would shut down the board for weeks or months as it provided thousands of pages of documents.

Lawyers for the state and for inmates said in a court filing Wednesday without giving details that the dispute has been resolved.
