Israeli Court: Compensate Girl Who Lost Mother's Female Partner in Carmel Fire

Decision recognizes the late Faviola Bohadana, who had been living with the girl’s biological mother, as step-parent of three-year old child, who will now be compensated.

An Israeli court appeals committee instructed the Defense Ministry on Wednesday to  compensate a 3-year-old girl who lost her mother's female partner, a prison guard, in the Carmel fire some two years ago.
