Bad Procedures for a Legal Travesty

The High Court judges ruled Wednesday on a petition submitted against the West Bank settlement building freeze that "a number of aspects remain as of yet unresolved in a satisfactory manner by the State."...

The judges, High Court President Dorit Beinish, Justice Ayala Procaccia, and Justice Neal Hendel, ruled that the State must provide supplementary information on the moratorium within a month, mainly on the issue of compensation...They also asked that a clarification be made under which pretexts one may petition the commission and how one is to go about doing so. In addition, the judges demanded that the State explain what the proper framework is for appealing decisions made by the commission.

However, the judges did not make any alterations in what is considered to be the core of the petition...the judges ruled that the building moratorium order stands unchanged as of yet.
