Text of Fla. Supreme Court Decision
Friday, November 17, 2000; 4:34 PM

Text of a stay order of the Florida Supreme Court Friday. The order forbids Katherine Harris, the Florida secretary of state, from certifying the state's votes in the presidential election until further notice from the Court:

"In order to maintain the status quo, the Court, on its own motion, enjoins the Respondent, Secretary of State and Respondent, the Elections Canvassing Commission, from certifying the results of the November 7, 2000 presidential election, until further notice of this Court. It is NOT the intent of this Order to stop the counting and conveying to the Secretary of State the results of absentee ballots or any other ballots."
