An extended panel of seven justices dismissed the case Thursday morning, because it saw no reason to "dedicate [the court's] limited resources to the examination of a theoretical question," since the 18th Knesset was dissolved, and Zoabi, as a member of the 19th Knesset, has parliamentary rights again.
