Child abduction and damages claim

Against our client it was claimed that her leaving Israel with her minor children without the father’s knowledge, constitutes an abduction according to The Hague Convention and the act is a civil wrong. The father is suing our client in damages claim of more than a million (1,000,000!) shekels, because of general and mental damages caused by her actions, according to him. After hearings where opinions were brought and after legal arguments, it was proved that my client’s actions didn’t constitute a civil wrong that allows a right to compensation, and even if they did, after our inquiries of the expert, it was proved that it was about a report that was invalid and unprofessional (although it was seemingly conducted by a psychiatrist) and in the report there are flaws that require its cancellation. The lawsuit against our client was dismissed!
