BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil's Justice Minister Jose Eduardo Cardoso plans to resign by Tuesday, a presidency source told Reuters on Monday.

Two Brazilian newspapers reported on Sunday that Cardoso is fed up with attacks on the ruling Workers' Party over a police probe into the activities of former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
