Jean-Marie Le Pen Reinstated in French Far-right Party

A French court has reinstated Jean-Marie Le Pen as a member of the far-right National Front party he founded decades ago, delivering a biting blow to his daughter and party president Marine Le Pen, who had suspended him after a series of controversial and anti-Semitic statements.
Jean-Marie Le Pen protested, and a court in the Paris suburb of Nanterre ruled in his favor Thursday. The judge said that the party breached its own statutes by suspending Le Pen without setting a date for a final decision on whether to expel him permanently.
