Supreme Court upholds use of lethal injections

I applaud the Supreme Court, I believe this is the correct decision. What bothers me is the last line of the article:

The Rev. Pat Delahanty, head of the Kentucky Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, said the ruling wasn't a surprise.

"We never expected it to do more than maybe slow down executions in Kentucky or elsewhere," Delahanty said. "We're going to be facing some executions soon."

To me, that's saying we purposely wasted the Supreme Court's time to further our personal agenda. And by doing that you wasted tax dollars. I would like to see some of the legitimate cases that had to be turned down to make room for this one.
