Appealing a ruling

Appealing a ruling Players in NABC+ events who want to appeal a director’s ruling initiate the process by speaking with the director who delivered the original ruling. The table director will fill out paperwork regarding the appeal, and the appellants will explain what they believe to be wrong with the initial ruling. From there, the case may be handled by a variety of means. When the appeals reviewer receives the case, the circumstances of that particular case will determine whether the case can be resolved by the original staff (in the case of misapplication of Law or regulation, for instance), a panel of directors, or even a committee-type hearing which could include bridge experts. l a director’s ruling initiate the process by speaking with the director who delivered the original ruling.

This clearly to me says the appeal panel will be either directors or expert players.

So who decides whether to include bridge experts?

Polls

How many players are polled is it a set number?

When the director approaches is the question in writing or does he rely on verbally relating the  information? 

Please remember i am asking about NABC level not your local tournament sectional or regional gold rush pairs games.

If you think rules are the same for all tournaments any levels please read the 1st line of the article  published
