Bush v. Gore (531 U.S. 98) was a landmark decision by the U.S. Supreme Court on December 12, 2000, which resolved the dispute over the 2000 presidential election between George W. Bush and Al Gore. The Court’s 5-4 decision halted the recount of ballots in Florida, effectively awarding the state’s 25 electoral votes to Bush and securing his victory in the election. The decision centered on the Equal Protection Clause, with the majority opinion stating that the varying standards of recount procedures violated the equal protection rights of voters. The ruling was controversial and remains a significant moment in U.S. legal and political history.
