LAS VEGAS (AP) -

Nevada's attorney general is asking the state Supreme Court for a quick review of a never-before-tried plan for a condemned inmate's lethal injection, because one of the drugs that would be used expires April 1.

Monica Moazez, spokeswoman for Attorney General Adam Laxalt, said Monday there's no additional comment about documents submitted Friday to the high court along with seven volumes of backup material.

Meanwhile, death-row inmate Scott Raymond Dozier is now telling a judge in Las Vegas that he doesn't care if the state uses a disputed paralytic as the third drug in his execution.

Dozier says in a letter he doesn't want more court proceedings, he just wants his sentence carried out.

Clark County District Court Judge Jennifer Togliatti has set a hearing Tuesday morning on that request.
