FairVote always argued that Brown vs. Smallwood
declared Bucklin unconstitutional because of
its violation of later-no-harm. FairVote always
claimed that, therefore, also Condorcet methods
were unconstitutional.

However, the memorandum of the district court
doesn't agree to this interpretation of Brown
vs. Smallwood. This means that this memorandum
is a progress at least in so far as FairVote
cannot use Brown vs. Smallwood anymore as an
argument against Condorcet methods.
