The courts announced on Tuesday that the Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court approved a settlement agreement between Hatnua MK Elazar Stern and journalist Emmanuel Rosen in which both parties dismissed their dueling defamation claims against each other. In the March 7 settlement, neither side admitted any wrongdoing and each side will pay his own litigation costs.

In June 2008, Rozen fired the opening shot, suing Stern following his remarks at a conference in Ramat Gan. He made the remarks in his capacity as a major general and head of the IDF’s Manpower Division.

In response to the suit, the civil division of the Tel Aviv District Attorney’s office countersued Rozen for remarks he made against Stern on his radio show.
