Bear with me, lower strata of a NLM sectional, Swiss teams. Both sides VUL.  S asks what was 2NT after East bids 3, East states unusual for the other two suits. South asks what's the point range, E states widely variable.  Both cards marked 2NT for two lower unbid.  S bids 3, but after auction passed out, W states 2NT was meant to be strong, E tells W they can't say that, S calls the director who tells them to play out the hand and call back if there's a problem, after which S goes down 4 (--400). S calls the director.

E/W have been playing for less than a year, I don't know how experienced N/.S are, but not very.

Same first round bidding at other table, with 2NT making 4 on a low club lead.

Table result stands
Contract stands, director makes sure E didn't use UI to help defend
Table result stands, e/w penalized
Rolled back to 2NT down 1 or 2
Rolled back to 2NT making 2-4
Rolled back to 3D making 3
