Would 2 over a normal 2 overcall have been forcing?
Still I think partner has shown forcing with , so he will get to play 8.

I play this as 6, 3NT shows the stopper without stopper and 3 stopper which leave room for 3 to ask for the stopper.

The 4 bid is not good, better is 3, much better is 4. The singleton in the East hand is not a surprise - West can see 12 tricks opposite x, Jxxxxx, xxxx, Qx.

The doctors are sueing the DBV and WBF in the civil courts in Germany. The case is still open.

Perfect fit - without the J would not be good.
North could have bid 4 because he can see the single opposite. However if you swap the minor suits in either hand it does not make.

initeresting is, if not natural, what the minor suit cue bid means?
As a passed hand one has 1NT and X already available for T/O.

But an exact hand and a bidding poll would be better

Why is 4NT not to play?
What would you bid with X, XX, KQ10x, QJxxxx

I dislike the word crime for the heart switch. Crime should be reserved for what Fantunes did.

The case is against the DBV and the WBF. The case against the WBF in Switzerland is being handled by the German courts (some sort of legal agreement).

So if the doctors win, it is of interest to all members of the WBF.

Redouble led to 2 led to 1400 for the bad guys.
The 1 bidders would do better whether they stayed in 1 or ran to 2.

Chuck was pretty good at guessing partner's shape, but way off in guessing the right contract.
Playing in 1 XX would be 2200 to the bad guys.
Playing in 2 was only 1400.
As it was, the best spots were 1 and 2 - Bridge is not an easy game.

West gave misinformation. He should have said no agreement, and a guess.
The question is whether the misinformation led to the 5 bid.
I believe that South assumed a 9 card fit from the 3 bid, so would always have bid 5 irrespective of the description.
So i agree with the ruling, but the poll should be conducted with the information that 3 promises 4 card support.

I am sure that Boye would not want anyone to have faith in him because he is Boye, rather in every case everyone should make up their own mind.
I have no reason to believe that any of Boye's attacks have been suspect, and I fail to see what is wrong with his tactics.
I believe that a campaign for better ethics is required - as Michel Rosenberg suggested in his excellent book. As I do not know what the incidents are that Boye refers to, I cannot make an informed comment on them.
