Arbitration report

The Report On Lengthy Litigation

The Arbitration Committee closed three cases this week.


A case against Rainbowwarrior1977 has closed, affirming the indefinite ban imposed by Redwolf24 in September.


A case against DotSix has closed. DotSix was banned for one year. The Arbitration Committee cited DotSix's constant edit-warring, lack of positive edits, and "malicious comments" on user talk pages.


A case against Keetoowah has closed. Keetoowah was warned against making legal threats, and put on personal attack parole.

Stevertigo case reopened

A case against Stevertigo for inappropriate use of administrative powers has been re-opened. Stevertigo was originally ordered to reaffirm his adminship at RfA; however, after many community members viewed the process of community de-adminship as wrong, the case was returned to the ArbCom. The dispute regarded Stevertigo's violation of the three-revert rule, and subsequently unblocking himself a number of times.
