The Representative for Public Complaints Against Judges, retired Supreme Court Justice Eliezer Rivlin, on Tuesday presented his 2013 annual report which noted a reduction from 13% to 9% in complaints against judges which were found to be valid.

A valid complaint indicates that the judge made one of a variety of possible errors.Though Rivlin presented the report, he only recently took office and much of the report was completed by his predecessor, retired Supreme Court Justice Eliezer Goldberg.

Rivlin personally presented the report to Supreme Court President Asher D. Grunis and Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and the justice ministry distributed the report to the press.

After last year's report saw a spike on valid complaints at the same time as Grunis was being accused of having allegedly protected some unfit judges from being removed from the bench, this year's report may give Grunis a boost against such criticism.
