Thai Court Ousts Prime Minister

A Thai court ordered Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra "removed from office, a highly divisive move and a victory for the powerful antigovernment movement that has sought to overthrow the government in Bangkok for the last six months," the New York Times reports.

"The court ruled that Ms. Yingluck abused her power when she transferred a civil servant more than three years ago. The court ordered her to step down immediately along with all members of Ms. Yingluck's cabinet who were in office at the time of the civil servant's transfer."
