Attorney Yoram Danziger will become the second private attorney in a month to fill an empty seat on the Supreme Court, the Committee for appointing Supreme Court Justices decided Monday evening. The committee met in the Justice Ministry offices late Monday afternoon to debate Danziger's appointment. Danziger was the sole candidate for review and will be the second justice to receive permanent status on the Supreme Court in the last three years. Last month Danziger lost out to Hanan Meltzer when Meltzer was appointed to the Court. Supreme Court Justice Ayala Procaccia abstained from the committee vote. After the session the committee deferred the selections of appointees for the two remaining seats because of irreconcilable differences between Justice Minister Daniel Friedman and Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch. Beinisch said during the debate on the appointment that the nomination of two private sector attorneys to the bench would destroy the balance of the Supreme Court. Since he took office, Friedman has emphasized his belief that the inclusion of more private sector attorneys will be beneficial to the Court. Danziger is one of the most high-profile attorneys on the Israeli legal scene. The managing partner at the Danziger, Klagsbald and Co. lawfirm, he was a popular candidate for the presidency of the Israel Bar Association before he pulled out due to a criminal investigation of his partner Dorie Klagsbald. Danziger is considered to be a specialist in business law, including corporate restructuring and joint ventures. He represents a number of Israeli companies operating worldwide and has advised international firms operating in Israel. A former member of the board of editors of the Tel Aviv University Law Review and vice-editor of the Israeli Bar Law Review, he has been a lecturer at the Tel Aviv University Faculty of Law for over 25 years. He also serves as a chairman of the Israel Bar Association's Institute of Continuing Legal Education. Danziger was awarded the Israeli Association for Parliamentarism prize, and served on the Justice Ministry's committee to review the structure and operations of the Official Receiver and General Custodian.
