In an unprecedented move, the Jerusalem City Council voted late Wednesday to oust the respected city attorney following a series of disputes between Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupolianski and the city's top law enforcement official over a series of controversial municipal moves. The dismissal will not go into effect until a Jerusalem labor court rules on the matter following a last-minute appeal the city attorney launched this week against his ouster. The 23-5 vote followed a rancorous three hour city council meeting on the issue which was repeatedly interrupted by hecklers on both sides.
