Supreme Court Briefs
NPR's Barbara Bradley reports on briefs filed with the Supreme Court today, in advance of tomorrow's oral arguments on election questions. The Bush campaign is asking the Supreme Court to say that the Florida State Supreme Court was wrong to extend the deadline for counties to report voting results. Such a decision would make it too late for the Gore campaign to contest the results. The Gore campaign is asking for the Supreme Court to uphold the state court. But also, in its brief, the Gore campaign is warning that if the Florida legislature plans to select is own delegates to the Electoral College, the Gore camp thinks it has legal grounds to stop them.
