"From Bush v. Gore to NAMUDNO: A Response to Professor Amar"
Ellen Katz has posted this draft on SSRN (forthcoming, Florida Law Review). Here is the abstract:
Professor Amar forcefully argues that the mistrust with which the Justices in the Bush v. Gore majority viewed the Florida Supreme Court was both unjustified and disastrously consequential. What NAMUDNO helps us see is that such mistrust, be it mistaken or warranted, need not be incompatible with a sound judicial response. NAMUDNO shows that the Court’s most profound error in Bush v. Gore was not the premise from which the Justices began, though flawed it may have been, but rather where they went from there.
