Brazil's ousted president Dilma Rousseff appeals to Supreme Court following impeachement

Brazil's ousted President Dilma Rousseff appealed to the Supreme Court on Thursday to overturn the Senate's decision to remove her from office for breaking budgetary rules.

The Senate voted 61-20 on Wednesday to dismiss the leftist leader, confirming her conservative Vice President Michel Temer as president for the remainder of her term through 2018.
