High Court rejects gov't reasonableness law hearing delay

The government's second request to postpone the reasonableness standard law hearing on September 12 was rejected by the High Court of Justice on Tuesday.

As with the previous request to delay the hearing, the court said that it wasn't possible to move the hearing due to scheduling issues involved with assembling all fifteen of the justices to hear the petitions.

The court did agree to give the respondents more time to file responses to the petitions. They would also be able to provide full written arguments after the hearing if needed.
