Compiled by Times staff writer

© St. Petersburg Times, published November 18, 2000


Friday's stay order of the Florida Supreme Court 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."
