Bush v. Gore, 531 U.S. (2000), a court case before the United States Supreme Court marked by scandalous abuse of process and corrupt partisanship on the part of the Republican-appointed majority of the bench.

The decision:
-prevented determination of the will of voters in Florida,
-over-ruled state authority over electoral process, and
-appointed G.W. Bush president.

The judicial culprits in this partisan travesty were:
-Rehnquist, William (boss-judge),
-O'Connor, Sandra Day,
-Kennedy, Anthony,
-Thomas, Clarence, and
-Scalia, Antonin.
For excellent examples of wisdom and legal reasoning, read the dissenting judgments of Justices Souter, Breyer, Stevens, and Ginsburg in Bush v. Gore.
