The district court approved a class action lawsuit against a company engaged in online shopping auctions. The lawsuit was conducted as a class action and a ruling was given accepting the lawsuit and stating that all participants must be reimbursed the participation fee they paid in the amount of millions NIS .
The company appealed to the Supreme Court that by a majority decision reversed the district’s decision and overturned the ruling, among other things,
it ruled that if it was an illegal agreement (a so-called gambling agreement) no refund could be made to anyone who participated in that illegal game.
A request for further hearing submitted by the plaintiff to the Supreme Court was denied.
