 Bush v. Gore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bush argued that the recounts in Florida violated the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment because there was no statewide standard that each county board could use to determine whether a given ballot was a legal vote.
Bush appealed the decision to the U.S. Supreme Court on December 9, and the Court issued a 5-4 injunction stopping the 64 of 67 county recount pending a final decision.
Gore, 531 U.S.), was a U.S. Supreme Court case heard on December 11, 2000, which directly influenced the outcome of the 2000 presidential election.

 United States presidential election, 2000 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jeb Bush, the brother of George W. Bush, was governor of Florida, leading some Gore advocates to make various allegations of impropriety, especially due to their joint campaigning for the Republican vote in Florida and Jeb Bush's assurances to George W. Bush that the Republicans could win Florida.
Bush, the governor of the second-largest state in the Union, the son of a former president, and the favored candidate of the Christian right, was portrayed in the media as the establishment candidate, while McCain, a maverick senator with the support of many moderate Republicans and Independents, was portrayed as an insurgent.

 Strauss, Bush v Gore: What Were They Thinking?
The decision in Bush v Gore was not dictated by the law in any sense—either the law found through research, or the law as reflected in the kind of intuitive sense that comes from immersion in the legal culture.
Had Vice President Gore prevailed on the merits in the Supreme Court, the stay might easily have deprived him of his victory, by preventing the counting of the ballots before the electors were to cast their votes on December 18.
Gore, a majority of the Court, prompted by a general and unjustified sense that something needed to be done, plunged in, splintered along ideological lines, and played a prominent role in deciding the election.

 JURIST - Kairys: Bush v. Gore Blues
Gore from a scientific point of view is a very important and very useful one because - as I observe it from abroad - the whole discussion is always blocked by the fact that the different contributions are Gore or Bush- biased or could be denounced as such.
The Bush campaign, like the Gore campaign and the major media, knew, based on early returns and exit polls, that the uncounted ballots came from predominantly Democratic neighborhoods and were cast mainly by voters who meant to vote, and thought they were voting, for Gore.
Gore suggested that these noble principles, which they had to resurrect from the Warren Court era because their own rulings undercut voting rights, would be applied only in this case and would therefore be used only to hand this election to George W. Bush.

The Supreme Court noted that petitioner, Governor George W. Bush asserted that the net gain for Vice President Gore in Palm Beach County was 176 votes, and directed the Circuit Court to resolve that dispute on remand.
Bush does not, of course, claim that any judicial act interpreting a statute of uncertain meaning is enough to displace the legislative provision and violate Article II; statutes require interpretation, which does not without more affect the legislative character of a statute within the meaning of the Constitution.
That court engaged in permissible construction in determining that Gore had instituted a contest authorized by the state statute, and it proceeded to direct the trial judge to deal with that contest in the exercise of the discretionary powers generously conferred by Fla. Stat.

 In Bush v. Gore, Supreme Court Conservatives Brought Disgrace on Their Institution
In either case Republicans for Bush may feel vindicated, if for no other reason than the recount did not unambiguously prove that Al Gore was the real victor and was wrongfully denied the presidency.
Four months after the disputed election, Republican adherents could claim that had the Supreme Court not intervened in the post-election recount in Florida, Bush would have won anyway, based on a review of balloting conducted by the accounting firm BDO Seidman and commissioned by a consortium of newspapers.

 Cover Story: Bush v. Gore Revisited
Gore, the parties’ top lawyers revisited the decisions that eventually led George W. Bush to the White House, allowing us to consider if Republican strategy was better than the Democrats’ or if Bush’s victory was simply inexorable.
To the Republican lawyers who represented Bush, though, these sentiments were “incomprehensible.” To Olson, in particular, they made no sense: “The road map was right there” for the Democrats to see all along in the form of a strong precedent in the Eleventh Circuit involving the Alabama Supreme Court.
Besides, even though Gore’s lawyers thought these wrongs could win the “crispest” legal remedies, these remedies tended to be future-oriented, such as enjoining wrongs in elections to come.
