The Supreme Court's intervention in the 2000 election will shape American law and democracy long after George W. Bush has left the White House. This study brings together a broad range of legal scholars who address the larger questions raised by the Supreme Court's actions. Did the Court's decision violate the rule of law? Did it inaugurate an era of super-politicized jurisprudence? How should Bush v. Gore change the terms of debate over the next round of Supreme Court appointments? The contributors - Bruce Ackerman, Jack Balkin, Guido Calabresi, Steven Calabresi, Owen Fiss, Charles Fried, Robert Post, Margaret Jane Radin, Jeffrey Rosen, Jed Rubenfeld, Cass Sunstein, Laurence Tribe and Mark Tushnet - represent a broad political spectrum. Their reactions to the case are varied, filled with argument and debate.
