Shorter, shorter, shorter.

Shorter Bush v. Gore: The different vote-counting methods in Florida would violate the equal protection right of the Florida voter. The time required to establish methods that would not violate this right would exceed the time remaining to determine electors, so the original count, which also employed those methods, shall be used to determine electors.

Shorter Southwest Voter Registration Education Project v. Shelley: The different vote-casting methods in California would violate the equal protection right of the California voter. The time required to establish methods that would not violate this right would exceed the time remaining before the vote, so the vote shall be delayed until those methods are established.

Shorter Righty: While the former is acceptable, the latter is exceedingly unfair.
