Supreme Court rejects Igal Sarna's appeal on Netanyahu suit

The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal by journalist Igal Sarna, over a suit Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara filed regarding a Facebook post he wrote.


Judge Yitzhak Amit said that a suit pressed by the prime minister against a private citizen indeed raised suspicion of a SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) suit, due to the disparity in power.


In that particular instance, however, Judge Amit said he was convinced the suit lacked the defining characteristics of a SLAPP suit.
