But in his statement announcing the partial reversal Friday, Brack said China had nothing to do with its initial decision. But regulators frowned on Legendary's lack of profitability and complex ownership structure when Wanda tried to fold it into its publicly-traded Wanda Cinema Line, which would have given Legendary CEO Thomas Tull a liquidity event.

Tull couldn't cash out and left the company last month. But on Friday, Blizzard President J.

Tull couldn't cash out and left the company last month. But the court order, and the specific privileges mandated, apply just to the men at San Quentin, not to condemned women. By treating McDermott differently than condemned men, the state prison system is taking a position that is grossly unfair, sexist and possibly unconstitutional, prison experts say.

Prison officials at Frontera say it would be too expensive and too time-consuming for their staff to provide McDermott with the same amenities the men have at San Quentin. Haney contends that the Department of Corrections was unprepared to house McDermott. As a result, when McDermott arrived at Frontera, she was sent to Greystone, a cell security housing unit designed for violent, abusive inmates.

While the other inmates may serve comparatively short terms in this prison-within-a-prison, a Death Row inmate could be there for years, or even decades, said Rebecca Jurado, an ACLU attorney in Los Angeles.

It has been easy for the Department of Corrections to overlook McDermott, Haney said, but eventually she will be joined by others, including Cynthia Coffman, who was sentenced to death last summer along with her boyfriend for torturing, raping and murdering a Redlands woman. Coffman would be on Death Row now, but she is awaiting a second murder trial in Santa Ana. But this Death Row also will be in a maximum-security housing unit designed for problem inmates, a unit with conditions almost identical to Greystone, prison officials said.

At one time, Frontera had a separate facility for condemned inmates with its own cellblock, exercise yard, shower, and visiting room. When the California Supreme Court declared the death penalty unconstitutional, the facility was converted into housing for mainline prisoners. But since , when the death penalty was reinstated in California, Frontera has been so crowded, prison officials said, it has not been practical to reserve a cellblock just for Death Row.

Condemned women are the forgotten variable in the capital punishment debate, said Victor Streib, a law professor at Cleveland State University and an expert on women and capital punishment. Politicians and prosecutors, he said, usually try to avoid talking about women when advocating the death penalty. When politicians talk about the death penalty, and someone asks them about women, they get embarrassed.

Because condemned women often are ignored, critics say, it is easy to also ignore their living conditions.
