DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - The Texas Supreme Court will hear arguments over whether the Texas Department of Criminal Justice needs to tell where it's got its death penalty drug back in 2014.

In an order this morning, the High Court set oral arguments for January.

An appeals lawyer who fights death penalty cases is demanding to know who the supplier of the drugs was back then.

The state has refused to make the disclosure.

The case does not have to do with the current supplier of lethal injection drugs.
