The Tel Aviv District Court rejected a petition to approve a NIS 300 million class action against the Tel-Aviv Central Bus Station, which was represented by Gornitzky & Co., alleging violations of the Prevention of Smoking and Exposure to Smoking in Public Places Act.


Judge Magen Altuvia denied class action status to the lawsuit and accepted the claims of Nitsba Holdings 1995 Ltd. (TASE: NTBA), which owns and operates the Tel-Aviv Central Bus Station, Israel's largest land transportation terminal. The court ruled that the liability of an operator of a public facility should not be determined by the outcome, but rather by whether necessary actions were taken to prevent the violations. 


Nitsba Holdings was represented by Mr. Noam Ronen (Partner) and Ms. Neta Peled.
