Rio Court of Justice suspended on Sunday evening (4) a return to face-to-face classes in the city of Rio de Janeiro. The preliminary decision served the popular action of a group of councilors and deputies and can be appealed.
Judge Roberto Camara Lace Brandao, from the Judicial Service, ordered the suspension until the merits are decided or the decision of the town hall is revoked. The judge imposed a fine in the amount of 50 thousand R $ in case the ban is not observed.
