Livni, Supreme Court President Believed to Be Backing Judge Accused of Child Abuse

Restricting the kinds of cases the judge could rule on is enough for Livni and Grunis, according to reports.

Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and Supreme Court President Asher Grunis met Tuesday with a judge accused of beating his children and are believed to be siding with the judge. The case was closed two weeks ago; the question is whether the judge may return to the bench.
