Judge in Pearlman appeal replaced at last moment

The judge of the Petah Tikva Magistrate's Court who was set to hear the police appeal to extend Haim Pearlman's arrest, was replaced by another judge moments before the hearing.
Judge Carla Ragiano was replaced by Judge Avraham Tal.
In response, Pearlman's family was outraged at the decision claiming that the replacement was not a mistake and that the Shin Bet had a hand in selecting who would judge the hearing.
