THAT CAN'T HAVE HURT:

Appeals judge gets nod for high court (ALLEN PUSEY, 7/20/05, The Dallas Morning News)

In the aftermath of the disputed 2000 presidential election, Judge Roberts played a key, if quiet, role in the Florida recount.

Although his name did not appear on the briefs, three sources who were personally aware of Judge Roberts' role said he gave Republican Gov. Jeb Bush critical advice on how the Florida Legislature could constitutionally name George W. Bush the winner at a time when Republicans feared that if the recount were to continue the courts might force a different choice.


Meanwhile, Michael Luttig criticized, justifiably, the legal logic of Gore v. Bush.
