Supreme Court Rejects Regavim Petition

Supreme Court President Asher Grunis rejected on Friday afternoon an appeal filed by the Regavim movement, against a last-minute government plan to give away huge swaths of Negev land to Bedouin tribes.

Judge Grunis based his decision on the fact that the petition is premature because it was filed before the government made the decision on the matter. The court ruled that after the government makes its decision on the matter, an appeal against it could be filed.
