NIS 190 million lawsuit filed against CityPass for issuing 60,000 light rail fines since 2012

CityPass on Monday dismissed as frivolous a NIS 191 million class-action lawsuit filed against it for allegedly allowing unauthorized light rail inspectors to illegally fine 60,000 strap hangers since the service was launched in Jerusalem in 2012.

The lawsuit, filed 10 days ago by attorney Yosi Havilio, who represents two plaintiffs, claims the massive figure includes damages caused to the 60,000 passengers fined to the present day for purportedly not properly paying for their fares on the trains.

“The legal argument is that the inspectors on the trains who issued the fines are not legally authorized to do so,” said Havilio on Monday.
