Egypt's top court was to rule whether Egypt's Islamist-dominated Senate should be dissolved as well as on the validity of a panel that wrote the country's controversial constitution. Morsi earned this nickname because he was Muslim Brotherhood's backup candidate behind Mahmoud Ezzat and Khairat el-Shater who was disqualified by election authority.
