Following the Supreme Court’s crafting of a compromise between author and plaintiff Sarah Shapiro and author and defendant Naomi Ragen, Shapiro said that she was “grateful” that the court upheld a lower court “injunction ordering the removal of passages” from one of Ragen’s books, which Shapiro said were plagiarized from one of her books.

Shapiro added, “From a moral and legal standpoint, I would like to express a profoundly felt thank you to them for protecting my work.”

To that extent, Ragen agreed as part of the proceeding to a court order to remove 29 sentences from her 400-page book in any future printings.

While Shapiro said she had agreed to the court ordering her to contribute NIS 97,000 to two charities, agreed on between the parties for the purposes of “peace” between them, the court order did uphold Shapiro keeping NIS 136,000 in damages from the original lower court ruling.
