Screen was not present and all the bids made by E were alerted by W and provided the explanation shown above.NS called the director as they could not understand how W can pass 4S doubled( and also how heelected 3NT over 3S ) with doubleton S and 4C knowing E has longer C than S.Director allowed the table result to stand.NS appealed against the ruling provided by the director but appeal committee also agreed to the directors ruling and NS money was forfeited as appeal committee did not find any relevance of the appeal.

Want to hear some opinions on this, and please let me know if the ruling u r thinking of, would changein presence of a screen.

Another point I should mention, E did not alert W 3C bid andhe was not asked about that neither by the director nor by the appeal committee.
