Philippine legislature, judiciary head for showdown

MANILA The Philippine Supreme Court ruled Monday that an attempt by the House of Representatives to impeach Chief Justice Hilario Davide over alleged misuse of funds is unconstitutional, raising the possibility of a standoff between the two government branches.

The 111-page ruling came as the House, which initiated the impeachment process, prepared to discuss whether to send the charges to the Senate for trial. (Kyodo News)
