Judge seals condemned inmate's allergy information


COLUMBUS — A federal judge won't let the public see the medical records of a condemned Ohio inmate who says he has an allergy to anesthesia that could affect his upcoming execution.

U.S. District Judge Gregory Frost on Thursday ordered the records sealed, granting a request from attorneys for Darryl Durr. He's scheduled to die Tuesday for raping and strangling a 16-year-old Elyria girl in 1988.

Durr's attorneys said the records, which have not yet been filed, contain personal information that should not be divulged to the public.

The lawyers argue a violent reaction to the anesthetic Ohio uses could deny Durr his constitutional right to a quick and painless death.
