This image shows a photograph of a hand-written, elaborately lettered invitation/ticket the
Idaho Daily Statesman had received the day before from Warden John W. Snook to attend
the execution of John Seward, published in a 1909 edition.

As Idaho's news media spar with the state in federal court over limits on access to
executions, the case has turned a spotlight on Idaho's long and consistent
history of media witnesses attending its state executions to serve as the eyes
and ears of the public. Media witnesses have been present for all but one
Idaho execution since 1901 and published detailed accounts of them.

Institution as Warden Randy Blades, right, stands in the observation room, in Boise, Idaho.

A legal challenge seeking full viewing access to Idaho executions will go before a federal
appeals court Thursday, June 7, 2012, with The Associated Press and 16 other news
 organizations saying the process is unconstitutionally restrictive.
