2000: In the case Bush v. Gore, the U.S. Supreme Court finds that the recount ordered by the Florida Supreme Court in the 2000 U.S. presidential election between Republican candidate George W. Bush and Democratic candidate Al Gore was unconstitutional. Vice President Gore would concede the election to Bush the next day.
