Grunis decides Alshech will stay on as judge

July 30, 2012 18:38

Supreme Court President Asher Dan Grunis said on Monday that Judge Varda Alshech will not be dismissed from her post for amending a court protocol, but will receive a severe reprimand.

The Bar Association filed a complaint against Alshech, who is the Tel Aviv District Court vice president, in 2011 after a lawyer who had taken part in a hearing before the judge regarding a company liquidation identified differences between the protocol (the minutes of the court hearing) he received immediately after the hearing and another copy he received months later. 

In a letter to Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman, Grunis said that Alshech could remain a judge, noting that Judiciary Ombudsman Judge (ret.) Eliezer Goldberg had not recommended terminating Alshech's tenure as a judge when he accepted the complaint against her.
