The High Court of Justice issues an injunction against the government’s recently passed “reasonableness law,” calling on the government and petitioners to provide an explanation to the court as to why it should stand.

But the court notes that the injunction is not an indication of the value of any of the petitions against the legislation — which limits judicial review of governmental decisions — is merely made “for efficiency reasons only, and is not expressing a position on the substance of things.”

An unprecedented 15-justice panel is slated to hear petitions against the law on September 12.
