The Report On Lengthy Litigation

By Ral315, 26 September 2005

The Arbitration Committee closed two cases this week; one against JarlaxleArtemis and one against ArmchairVexillologistDon. In addition, a whopping seven new cases were accepted.


A case against JarlaxleArtemis has closed with no extra sanctions after the Wikipedia community effectively banned JarlaxleArtemis. Last week, a checkuser operation performed by David Gerard reported that JarlaxleArtemis was the creator of numerous sockpuppets with offensive usernames, most of which attacked Linuxbeak and other administrators.


A case against ArmchairVexillologistDon has been closed after the original user who brought the case withdrew from the case. User:Homey's complaint, which was filed in December 2004, was originally closed after ArmchairVexillologistDon left Wikipedia, but was continued when he returned to the project recently. Homey officially withdrew the case, however, on September 3, and the case was subsequently closed three weeks later.
