Supreme Court to review petition demanding Levin convene judge selection panel Sept. 7

The Supreme Court has announced the members of a panel of judges who will review the opposition’s petition demanding Justice Minister Yariv Levin convene the Judicial Selection Committee to allow it to do its work.

Levin has refused to call a meeting of the panel, whose composition he first seeks to change through highly controversial legislation to give the coalition greater power over judicial choices.

The panel of three judges — Anat Baron, David Mintz and YUosef Elron — will convene on September 7 to review the petition.

Baron is considered a liberal while the two others are conservatives.
