      'Grunis Law' Up for Approval

      A bill to cancel the requirement that a judge serve three years on the Supreme Court before being elected its president will apparently receive its second and third readings in the Knesset on Monday. The law also allows a judge nearing retirement to be named to the position.

      The bill has been called the Grunis Law because its passage will pave the way for Justice Asher Grunis to be named to replace Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch, when she steps down in February.
