The High Court of Justice denied a petition by the Jerusalem municipality to force Channel 10 to move to capital rather than the suburb of Neve Ilan on Tuesday.

Channel 10's move to the JCS building near the entrance of the city was hyped as an opportunity to create jobs in the capital, despite the fact that the rent and operating costs are much higher in Jerusalem than Neve Ilan, where Channel 2 is also located. Channel 10 is facing financial difficulties and may be forced to close at the end of January if the company cannot repay their debts.

Major TV news channels are required by a special communications law to operate from Jerusalem, and the High Court decided that Neve Ilan satisfied the requirement by being in the "greater Jerusalem district." Channel 10 is currently located in Givatayim.
