Represented Presidential Campaign Before State Elections Officials in 2000 Florida Recount


  • Represented presidential campaign before state elections officials in 2000 Florida recount, aggressively exposing corrupt procedural rules and biased counting, successfully challenging and excluding determinative volume of opposing candidate’s ballots, and advising general counsel and senior campaign leadership on tactics and strategy in multiple recount venues; helped develop equal protection claim for prosecuting first suit for injunctive relief, a constitutional argument that was ultimately presented to U.S. Supreme Court.
 
Result: Large volume of challenged opposition ballots remained excluded from final count; U.S. Supreme Court enjoined further recounts based on equal protection violation; client campaign won election.
