Beit Din Litigation

Orthodox Jews are required to submit their financial disputes to a rabbinical panel known as a beit din (which translates to “House of Judgment”).  The purpose of the beit din is to use a panel that understands their laws, rules, and traditions, and will apply Jewish law (known as Halacha) to resolve the dispute. 

Joshua Borger, a partner at GED, can represent you if you require a dispute to be resolved in a beit din.

The Daily Journal, California’s leading newspaper for lawyers, published an article by Joshua Borger on whether arbitral rulings of the Batte Din (the religious court) applying Jewish law can be confirmed by a civil court without violating modern laws on economic competition, namely antitrust laws.
