Justice Minister Ya'acov Ne'eman and Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch on Monday announced the appointment of new presidents for five district and magistrate's courts around the country. The new presidents are Tel Aviv District Court Judge Dvora Berliner, who until now was also a candidate for the Supreme Court, Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court Judge Ziva Herman-Hadassi, Jerusalem Magistrate's Court Judge Shulamit Dotan, Central District Magistrate's Court Judge Daphna Blatman Kedrai and Northern District Magistrate's Court Judge Georges Azoulay. It marks the first time since the establishment of the new government that Ne'eman and Beinisch have had to work together in order to jointly make judicial appointments. The appointments were required because of a law passed by Ne'eman's predecessor, Daniel Friedmann, which limited the tenure of lower court presidents to one term of seven years.
