The Legal Lessons of the 2000 Elections
From the paper:
There are a number of sets of related issues that most be considered in assessing how the court performed. One of these, which we shall get to momentarily, is that of the legal soundness of the decision itself. This is actually in some ways not as important as it might seem that it should be because while it is certainly arguable that this was a bad decision (even if one likes the result one might still argue this). Courts, after all, make bad decisions all the time. This is why the practice of law is an iterative one: Good future decisions can compensate for bad past ones.
