(p.157) 7 The Bush v. Gore Decision
The Psychology of the Supreme Court

Lawrence S. Wrightsman

Oxford University Press

The decision by the Supreme Court in Bush v. Gore will forever be mentioned as one of its most significant. On December 12, 2000, it curtailed the recounting of votes in Florida, meaning that George W. Bush had been elected president. This chapter begins with a chronology of events leading up to the decision. It then summarizes the opinion, describes criticisms and other reactions, and seeks to explain the outcome from the different models of decision-making described earlier in this book.

Keywords:   Supreme Court, judicial decision-making, Bush v. Gore
