Iraqi-born judge Edmond Levy dies

 With thanks: Sylvia

Eulogies have been pouring in following the sudden death of Edmond Levy. Until he retired three years ago, the Iraqi-born Levy was the only Mizrahi judge on the Supreme Court. He will be best remembered for returning a 'controversial' report in 2012, legitimising West Bank Jewish settlements.
