Dozens of judges co-signed a letter over the weekend addressed to a Jerusalem District Court judge urging him to bow out of the race for the State Attorney's position, Israel Radio reported.

Judge Zvi Segal is one of four candidates being considered for the post that is being vacated by Moshe Lador.

According to the judges, Segal ought to quit in protest over what they perceive as a rubber-stamp process the result of which is already determined.
