The Supreme Court will hold another hearing on the appeal of lawyer Yisrael Perry, who was convicted in 2007 of stealing hundreds of millions of marks from thousands of Holocaust survivors, Judge Eliezer Rubin ruled on Thursday. Perry was convicted of stealing money from a total of 9,000 clients. He was convicted on two counts of theft and fraudulent receipt of goods under aggravated circumstances, unlawfully dealing in insurance schemes, and subverting the course of a trial, among other charges. The hearing, presided over by a large panel of judges, will focus only on Perry's conviction on charges of larceny.
