The High Court of Justice will hear petitions against the reasonableness law, according to the Movement for Quality Government in Israel, with a court date set for September.
The government will have to file its response 10 days before the hearing.
“We are ready. We will appear at the Supreme Court to defend Israeli democracy and do everything we can to stop the judicial coup,” said MQG chief Eliad Shraga. “We will continue to protest and fight everywhere and from every podium until the threat is removed.”
The organization is one of seven petitioners against the law, which blocks courts from using the judicial standard of “reasonableness” to scrutinize government decisions.
While scheduling a hearing, the court did not issue an injunction against the law, which formally took effect today.
The September court date means that outgoing Chief Justice Esther Hayut will hear the petition, before her scheduled retirement the next month.
