In Bush v. Gore the candidate Bush claims that he was the plaintiff. Plaintiff to what? Firstly, he was never a candidate. That's right, neither Gore or Bush were presidential candidates in 2000. They were prospective candidates to the 25 electors who were to meet in December. Please recall: we do not have a direct presidential election. The State of Florida has a Legislature which has selected a popular vote method to choose its 25 electors.
Thus, the only candidates in Florida were the various "candidate for electoral office" which Katherine Harris certifies as winners. Even Katherine Harris (the Sect. of State) erroneously declared George Bush the victor when she certified the state vote tally. How could she declare Bush the winner when the electors had not yet met and cast their votes? Was she insane? Al Gore and George Bush had nothing to do with her certifying twenty-five electors.
Therefore, neither Bush nor Gore were candidates and the Court had no jurisdiction over Bush's case. The only jurisdiction that the court may have had was over one or more of the 25 electoral candidates. The Supreme Court should have dismissed the case because Bush had no legal standing in his demand. The Court should have rule, "Case dismissed for Lack of Jurisdiction!!"
When does a court have personal jurisdiction over a party to a lawsuit

Personal jurisdiction is important to the court because it means that the court has authority of the people involved in the lawsuit. This means that any results from the court can be enforced.
A Court must have subject matter Jurisdiction, as well as personal jurisdiction over the parties.
Personal jurisdiction is a phrase used to describe a court's jurisdiction over a the parties in a lawsuit. If a court did not have this, their ruling would not be enforced against the party.
Define "personal." They apply to EVERYONE under the jurisdiction of US law. !
Through service of process (notice and a copy of the complaint) to the defendant. Alternatively, if the defendant shows up argues on the merits, you'll have personal jurisdiction too.
In personam, in rem, and quasi in rem.
