Bush v. Gore

Bush v. Gore not only resolved a state vote recount but finalized the outcome of the 2000 presidential election. Al Gore requested a recount of the Florida ballots after George W. Bush won the contested state by an extremely narrow margin. About a month after the election, the Supreme Court voted to stop the ongoing manual recount efforts on the grounds that the methods being used left too much room for interpretation of a ballot and thus violated the Fourteenth Amendment. This decision allowed Bush’s Florida win—and, by extension, the whole election—to stand, and he was inaugurated the following February.
