Leon County Circuit Court

Al Gore's contest of the Florida election results has failed its first test. After two marathon courtroom sessions over the weekend at the Leon County Circuit Court, Judge N. Sanders Sauls ruled against the Gore request for a hand count of thousands of disputed ballots from Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties. We hear excerpts of Saul's ruling and NPR's Andy Bowers in Tallahassee talks with Robert Siegel.
