Description

Bush v. Gore, 531 U.S. 98 (2000), was a United States Supreme Court case decided on December 12, 2000. The case effectively resolved the 2000 presidential election in favor of George W. Bush. Only eight days earlier, the United States Supreme Court had unanimously decided the closely related case of Bush v. Palm Beach County Canvassing Board, 531 U.S. 70 (2000), and only three days earlier, the United States Supreme Court had preliminarily halted the recount that was occurring in Florida.

In a per curiam decision, by a 7–2 vote, the Court in Bush v. Gore held that the Florida Supreme Court's method for recounting ballots was a violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. By a 5–4 vote, the Court held that no alternative method could be established within the time limits set by the State of Florida. Three of the concurring justices also asserted that the Florida Supreme Court had violated Article II, § 1, cl. 2 of the Constitution, by misinterpreting Florida election law that had been enacted by the Florida Legislature.

The decision allowed Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris's previous certification of George W. Bush as the winner of Florida's electoral votes to stand. Florida's 25 electoral votes gave Bush, the Republican candidate, 271 electoral votes, defeating Democratic candidate Al Gore, who ended up with 266 electoral votes (with one D.C. elector abstaining). A majority (270) of the electoral votes are needed to win the Presidency or Vice Presidency in the Electoral College.

This decision is very readable by everyone and great for anyone interested in learning more about the supreme court, history, or the subject of the case.

LANDMARK DECISION:

A landmark decision is the outcome of a legal case (often thus referred to as a landmark case) that establishes a precedent that either substantially changes the interpretation of the law or that simply establishes new case law on a particular issue. Certain cases within this category are widely known in legal studies and may be reviewed by law students even if they have been overturned by later decisions.

The term "landmark decision" is not a formal legal term but a colloquialism, however it is in widespread use amongst legal professionals — over 5, 000 published opinions of lower courts can be found identifying some precedent as a landmark decision in the field of law being addressed.

Very useable; a general reader would be good.

:
The app seems useful enough and is well organized (but I'm not a lawyer). However, I don't want to litter my iPod Touch screens with lots of apps for individual court cases or selected packages of them. A general reader, suitable for this type of reading, and permitting (exportable) annotations would be a great contribution, and perhaps in-app purchases could be used to sell individual cases. Going beyond the court, it would be great if currently pending legislation were published in readable form, with real tables of contents and cross references; reading HR3200 without this is painful. Perhaps this is an opportunity for CHS.
