The Supreme Court on Sunday night 24 Adar ruled in favor of Yated Neeman in the case of a petition against the newspaper by the chareidi women’s party “B’Zechutan” which seeks to compel the newspaper to show photos of women in its publication. The women’s party took its case to court after chareidi media refused to accept paid election ads containing photos of women.
Last week a lower court ruled that Yated and Yom L’Yom, with the latter affiliated with the Shas party, must accept the ads, but the High Court on Sunday overturned the lower court’s ruling after Yated appealed the ruling.
Yated officials stated “Even the High Court realized the petition was vexatious and we are pleased to continue upholding our principles”.
