Gornitzky represented heirs in an appeal that was filed with the Lod-Central District Court against a judgment that had been handed down in their favor by the Family Court in Rishon Lezion (the Honorable Judge Shira) and that denied the motion to revoke an oral will that had been filed by another heir (their sister) in connection with the will of the deceased with a value of over NIS 100 million. In the course of the hearing that was held before the District Court (the judges on the panel were Judge Brant, Judge Plaut and Judge Weizman), criticism was made against the filing of the appeal, despite the incisive and well-reasoned judgment that had been handed down by the Family Court in Rishon Lezion (in this proceeding, too, the winning heirs were represented by Gornitzky).
The criticism placed emphasis, among other things, on the problematic conduct of the Appellant throughout the entire proceeding. At the end of the hearing, the Appellant accepted the judges’ recommendation and, accordingly, the appeal was dismissed.
The (winning) heirs were represented by partners Orly Tenennbaum, Aviram Handel and Ehud Katzenelson.
