The Report on Lengthy Litigation
The Arbitration Committee closed three cases since the last issue, and opened one, leaving two cases currently open.
- Sarah Palin protection wheel war: Closed on October 20, a case involving allegations of wheel-warring on the Sarah Palin article, over a dispute as to the merits of page protection being applied in respect of it. As a result of the case, Jossi and MZMcBride were admonished for their use of administrative tools in the dispute and all parties in the case were instructed to carefully review the findings of the case, and the community was urged to continue discussions regarding the improvement of the biographies of living persons policy.
- Abtract-Collectonian: A case between Abtract and Collectonian, involving an editing dispute between the two. As a result of the case, Abtract was restricted from interacting with, harassing, or wikistalking Collectonian, or making uncivil comments about any other user. Collectonian, meanwhile, was urged to "continue to avoid any unnecessary interaction with Abtract".
- Piotrus 2: A second case involving alleged edit warring and other misconduct by Piotrus and other editors. Piotrus denies the allegations against him, and has suggested that the case may be a deliberate attempt to drive him from the site. The case, which has been open for over two months, involves a large number of users not named as official "parties" to the case, but cited in workshop proposals made by arbitrator Kirill Lokshin.
