Contests Supreme Court decision

9 Dec, 2000

Klain and fellow Gore campaign legal advisor David Boies hold a news conference about the decision to halt the recount:

I think we remain very optimistic about the court — about us ultimately prevailing in the Supreme Court when it hears this case on Monday. We believe that this decision of the Florida Supreme Court was correct, based on state law, and was a faithful and traditional application of this court’s, of this state’s, statutes and precedents in dealing with election contests. And we believe when the Supreme Court ultimately hears this case, that will be their conclusion.
