The Florida Supreme Court has just delivered a 42 page judgement concerning the outcome of the Florida State
Presidential Election holding that the hand recounts currently underway will count in the Presidential race.
The court said that the County Canvassing boards conducting the recounts will have to file their results by 9am November
In doing so the court overturned an earlier decision that held that the Florida Secretary of State had a discretion not
to accept the results of hand recounts.
