11th Circuit

NPR's David Molpus reports that Bush and Gore lawyers have filed briefs with the federal appeals court in Atlanta. Bush's lawyers are asking the court to block further recounts of the Florida vote, maintaining that the procedures are unconstitutional and are undermining the integrity of the election. Gore's lawyers say Florida courts should have control, and the appeals court should uphold lower federal judges, who declined to intervene.
