John Paul Stevens on Principles & Values

Supreme Court Justice (nominated by Pres. Ford 1975)

 


Bush v. Gore: recount all votes in Florida

The Court reversed the Florida Supreme Court decision ordering manual recount of presidential election ballots. A majority agreed that the recount violated the Constitution's equal protection clause, since counting standards varied among counties. The decision effectively ended the presidential election, handing a victory to George W. Bush.
