RE: Dr Joseph Zernik v Governor of the Bank of Isreal Stanley Fischer (Bagatz 7650/12) –request for certification of registration of entry of commencing paper and dueassignment to judge
Your response in this matter within 10 days is respectfully requested.
To the Honorable Chief Clerk Sarah Lifschitz and Head of Unrepresented Parties DivisionAttorney Ben Tovim:In a phone conversation with Attorney Ben Tovim yesterday, we discussed the following –
1. Registration of entry/rejection from registration of the commencing paper "Petition fora conditional decree" in the above referenced action, which was filed on October 23,2012 -
in our conversation I raised concerns regarding the registration of the commencingpaper in this case. In contrast with previous cases, Attorney Ben Tovim refused to sign the"Received" stamp in the designated space on the date of filing. In the online public accesssystem there is no direct notation of the entry into registration of such paper, in contrast with asecond paper, filed on the same date, which was listed online under "Requests", as "Waiver offees", and also in contrast with other Bagatz files, where on the filing of the commencing paper,under "Events", one finds notation "Process filed". In response, Attorney Ben Tovim wasangered that I bother him with such questions. However, a reasonable person, upon review ofthe records in this case and similar cases in the online system, surely will find the recordsinconsistent and ambiguous, and therefore, is likely to be concerned, where no concern shouldbe found in the first place.
2. Status of the case and due assignment to a judge -
In our phone conversation Imentioned that the processing of this case appears much slower than usual. Attorney BenTovim responded that the case is in the "good hands of Magistrate Liat Ben Melech". In thiscase, as in other cases, the online public access system shows no information regardingassignment of cases to the due judicial authority. Moreover, search of the decisions of theSupreme Court finds "Liat Ben Melech" only as an attorney, who appeared on behalf of thegovernment of the State of Israel in a couple of cases in the years 2003-4. No record wasfound, referring to "Liat Ben Melech" as "Magistrate". Similar searches in the Registry of theState of Israel (Judicial Appointments) and on the networks in general, failed as well to discoverso far any mention of "Liat Ben Melech" as "Magistrate" of the Supreme Court.Therefore, I would be grateful if the office of the Clerk of the Court could please produce to myaddress, below, a certificate pertaining to
Dr Joseph Zernik v Governor of the Bank of Israel Stanley Fischer
(Bagatz 7650/12) regarding
Entry/Rejection from registration of thecommencing paper in the action, referenced above, "Petition for a Conditional Decree",which was filed on October 23, 2012,
Status of the processing of the case and dueassignment to the appropriate judicial authority.
Thank you very much for your help in this matter.Date: October 29, 2012
