The state sought an injunction from the National Labor Court Monday afternoon that would order medical residents to return to work. Several hundred medical residents resigned and did not show up for work Monday morning as part of a labor dispute.

Also being considered was an order that would see more senior doctors transferred to departments where the residents' absence has created backups. Such a process was already signed off on by Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein but still needs to be authorized by the director-general of the Health Ministry, Army Radio reported.
