U.S. Supreme Court Halts Recount in Divided Decision


The high court voted 5-4 to stop a recount that had been ordered Friday by the Florida Supreme Court to address claims by Gore that some votes cast for him on November 7 were never counted.

One dissenter, Justice John Paul Stevens, wrote that “the legitimacy of the election” might be forever stained if the recount was stopped.

The court ordered oral arguments for 11 a.m. Monday.
