Gore Appeal

NPR's Barbara Bradley looks at how Vice President Gore's lawyers will argue his appeal of a state trial judge's ruling against recounting ballots. Gore's attorneys say they plan to argue that Florida law requires the judge to look at disputed ballots, and Judge N. Sanders Sauls did not. They also intend to question the reasonableness of his standard for ordering a recount, that Gore must show a probability that the outcome of the election would be changed.
