The Florida electoral controversy and the subsequent decisions by the Florida courts and the U.S. Supreme Court left citizens and scholars alike divided over the role of the judiciary in the electoral arena. Now, after a few months of reflection, leading constitutional scholarsCass R. Sunstein, Richard A. Epstein, Pamela S. Karlan, Richard A. Posner, and John Yoo, among othersweigh in on the Court's actions, which seem sensible, legally legitimate, and pragmatically defensible to some and an egregious abuse of power to others. Representing the full spectrum of views and arguments, these authors offer the most timely and considered guide to the ultimate consequences and significance of the Supreme Court's actions.
