In the 2-1 vote, a panel of three High Court justices rejected a petition by the Council of Jewish Communities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza to allow the settlers to move the nine disputed buildings in Amona by themselves. The petitioners' representative, attorney David Rotem, asked the court to allow the settlers to saw through the structures above their foundations and move the buildings, intact, to the nearby settlement of Ofra. Rotem said that in a meeting held the previous day between Attorney-General Manahem Mazuz and former MK Chanan Porat, Mazuz had told Porat that the offer was "reasonable." However, the state's representative attorney Osnat Mandel denied that Mazuz had expressed support for the proposal. Mazuz contacted Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who told him that the army was against the plan.
