Arkansas prison officials asked the state’s highest court Friday to stay a judge’s order that they must disclose more information about one of the drugs they plan to use in the executions of eight men over a 10-day period in April.

The attorney general’s office asked the state Supreme Court to issue a stay of Pulaski County Circuit Judge Wendell Griffen’s order requiring Arkansas to release copies of the package insert and labels for its supply of potassium chloride, one of the three drugs used in its lethal injection protocol.
