Gornitzky represented Kaldash Construction Ltd. in a claim filed against it in the Holyland affair. The matter originated in 2013, upon the decision of Jerusalem's Local Planning and Building Committee to file a claim against the entrepreneurs of the Holyland project.
The Municipality's main argument included the fact that based on testimonies given in the criminal case of the late state witness, Mr. Shmuel Dachner, the Holyland entrepreneurs allegedly conspired to deceive the Municipality and mislead it within the framework of the negotiations to sign an exclusive land betterment tax agreement.
The court fully accepted Kaldash Construction's arguments and ruled that there was no conspiracy whatsoever, nor was anything concealed from the Municipality. In his ruling, the honorable Judge Winograd also dismissed the Local Committee's claim in the amount of NIS 130 million against Kaldash Construction, instead ordereding the Committee to pay expenses in an overall amount of NIS 1.4 million.
