The US Supreme Court is the head of the judicial branch of the federal government. It is the highest court in the land, with thousands of cases appealed to it every year. One of those history-making cases was Bush v. Gore, which addressed the Florida vote recounts in the 2000 presidential election. Readers will follow this case from beginning to end, including the social and political climates that led up to it and the effects it had after the court made its ruling. Major players and key events are discussed, including George W. Bush, Albert Gore Junior, Dick Cheney, Joseph Lieberman, Karl Rove, William Daley, Katherine Harris, and William H. Rehnquist. Compelling chapters and informative sidebars also cover the Electoral College, presidential debates, hanging chads, third party candidates, and protests. Bush v. Gore forever influenced laws on voting procedures, absentee ballots, ballot design, and voting equipment. This landmark Supreme Court case changed the course of US history and shaped the country we live in. Landmark Supreme Court Cases is a series in Essential Library, an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
