Brazil's Rousseff scores court win in impeachment case

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff in Brasilia on December 17, 2015Brasília (AFP) – Brazil’s Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Congress must restart impeachment proceedings against Dilma Rousseff from scratch and overhauled the procedure, in a badly needed win for the embattled president. In an 8-3 decision, the judges annulled an opposition-dominated impeachment commission established by secret ballot in the lower house last week and ordered the procedure be restarted in an open vote. It also gave the final word on whether to open an impeachment trial to the Senate, where Rousseff has greater support.
