Ort Israel on Tuesday won a contempt of court petition against World Ort, which has continued to use the word "Ort" in its activities in Israel despite a court order not to do so. Deputy Haifa District Court Judge Gideon Ginat fined World Ort NIS 30,000 and ordered it to pay NIS 30,000 plus VAT to Ort Israel for court costs. Ort Israel was represented in the case by attorneys Aharon Pollak, Aviad Ofir and Dana Sagiv of the law firm Amit, Pollak and Matalon. In April 2008, Ginat handed down the original order instructing World Ort to stop using the name "Ort."
