Fifteenth Anniversary of Bush v. Gore on Saturday

Saturday marks the 15th anniversary of Bush v. Gore, the 2000 case which settled the disputed election in Florida between Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Al Gore.

I have this oped in the Orlando Sentinel reflecting on what’s changed (and what hasn’t) since the case was decided.

On Tuesday December 15, I will be speaking on the case’s legacy at an ACS event in Washington, DC with Joan Biskupic, Judith Browne Davis, Pam Karlan and Nelson Lund.

You can go back and read these reflections on the 10th anniversary of Bush v. Gore:

Lyle Denniston, That Night at the Courthouse
Ned Foley, Bush v. Gore in Historical Perspective (Moritz)
Heather Gerken, Rethinking the 2000 Fiasco
Rick Hasen, Election Hangover: The Real Legacy of Bush v. Gore (Slate)
Nate Persily, Bush v. Gore in the American Mind
Rick Pildes, That Night Ten Years Ago

More Bush v. Gore reflections here.

And in honor of the anniversary and the publication of his new book, Ned Foley will be guest blogging all next week about Ballot Battles: The History of Disputed Elections in the United States.
