Kibitzer draws attention to a false concession
It is entirely possible that each defender thought that the other still held a higher club.
Correct ruling on a claim?
If director rules 3nt-1 making, he rules against E/W, and if he rules 3nt making, he rules against N/S, who are customers as well. So whatever he does, he cannot comply with rule #1.
Gameforcing or Forcing for one Round
To my surprise when discussing an auction that contained this sequence with my partner (we happened to find it in some booklet) we realized that we had different opinions. For me it was clear that 2 is forcing for one round only, and he was sure that it is ...
Tricky ruling
The Law 20F requires players to give correct information. If they fail to do so, no matter for what reason, this is misinformation, and this is an irregularity (Law 21B3).

Thanks for your Votes. The reason for the poll was that North took some time before her pass after the 1nt, and South bid 2. The poll clearly suggests that pass was a logical alternative for South.
Failure to alert
The German Regulation ("Turnierordnung") tells us to alert a bid if it is artificial or has an unusual meaning or strength §(15). In this case, the strength of the 2 bid may be unusual, depending on the environment where this is bid - if in some bridgeclub several pairs are ...
Copyright
Did the ABCL add anything substantial to the Laws? Unless they did, I would rather think that the copyright belongs to the WBF. Generally, IMO any laws should not be published under copyright. E.g. there is no copyright for German laws. The main web page where all German laws ...
