The Supreme Court, sitting as the High Court of Justice, ruled on Wednesday that it would not issue a temporary injunction against the expulsion of army cadet Yoel Glickman from an officers course.

Glickman was dismissed from the course along with three other religious cadets after refusing to comply with a direct order from his battalion commander to return to an IDF event where women were singing. He filed the petition asking the court to issue an order nisi and an interim injunction against the IDF to overturn his expulsion.

Justice Neal Handel said that he saw “no reason to grant an interim injunction at this stage” but determined that the petition should be scheduled for a hearing before a panel of three justices as soon as possible.

Handel also ruled that a preliminary response to the petition will be filed two days before that hearing.

In a response to the petition submitted Tuesday evening, the State Attorney’s Office said the expulsion of the cadets was justified and their refusal to listen to their commander who instructed them to go back to the event constituted a violation of a legitimate order.
