This is a story that was relayed to me and I was asked about, but was not involved in. I gave my opinion, but thought I would ask the community...

 

2C was Michael’s. Both pairs are newer players, and East had gotten confused about the meaning of the 2C bid. East made 4 on a diamond lead.

After the hand, N/S called the director (who was also somewhat new), and after some consultation with others in the room the director ruled that the 2C bid had prevented N/S from finding their heart fit, and consequently adjusted the contract to 2H by N/S, making 2.

 

Seems wrong to me, but I’m no expert. What‘s your ruling?
