Grunis to be Selected High Court President Friday

The Committee for Selecting Judges will meet, Friday, to formally approve the appointment of Supreme Court Justice Asher Grunis to head the panel upon this month's retirement of High Court President Dorit Beinisch.

Grunis is the only candidate. Because of the closeness of his retirement, the Knesset had to amend the rules to make him eligible for the position.
