Florida Supreme Court Slow to Decide on Recount

Tuesday, 21 November 2000 12:00 AM

Court spokesman Craig Waters told reporters at 11 a.m. EST Tuesday, "We have no timetable at the present time." He later indicated that a decision could come after the Thanksgiving holiday.

There is no way of knowing when a ruling will come, but when it does, reporters will get a 30-minute warning before an announcement is made, Waters said.

Attorneys for George W. Bush filed a legal brief arguing that the justices had no authority to set rules on which presidential ballots can or cannot be counted, CNN reported. Republicans urged the court to enforce the Nov. 14 deadline, set by state law, for counties to report final vote tallies. Gore attorney David Boies argued that the court "certainly has the power" to extend Florida's deadline.

Democrats seek a broader counting of ballots – even when a voter's "intent" is not clear, CNN reported. The court ruling, whenever it comes, could determine who wins the presidency, a question that remains unresolved a full two weeks after the election.
