A source from the administrative court said that 37 legal claims were filed against Egypt's President Mohamed Mursi since he was officially named president on June 30, Al-Watan reported.

Twenty-five of the 37 legal suits are against Mursi's decision to reinstate parliament.

Mursi issued a decision to reinstate the People's Assembly early June after the military council ordered its dissolution following a constitutional court's rule against the elections that brought it to place.

Seven to 10 other suits were submitted to the administrative court (state council) against Mursi's decision to annul the constitutional decree issued by the military council mid June.
