The High Court of Justice is avoiof ding making a decision on the legality of the last Knesset's decision to revoke Balad MK Haneen Zoabi's parliamentary immunity, she and MK Yariv Levin (Likud Beytenu) said on Thursday, after the court dismissed Zoabi's appeal against the vote.

An extended panel of seven justices dismissed the case Thursday morning, because it saw no reason to "dedicate [the court's] limited resources to the examination of a theoretical question," since the 18th Knesset was dissolved, and Zoabi, as a member of the 19th Knesset, has parliamentary rights again.
