The Race and politics case has been accepted for arbitration, and the evidence phase is now open. Two other cases remain open.

Open cases

Race and politics

The evidence phase of this case, which deals with sourcing methods in articles pertaining to race politics, is scheduled to close May 21, 2013, the workshop is to close on May 28 and the proposed decision is scheduled to be posted June 4.

Argentine History

In the case, brought by Lecen, an editor is accused of systematically skewing several articles involving former Argentine president Juan Manuel de Rosas to portray a brutal dictator as a democratic leader, in keeping with the political motives of Argentine "nationalists" or "revisionists".

The evidence stage was scheduled to close 12 April 2013, the workshop stage on 19 April, and a proposed decision was scheduled for 26 April.

Tea Party movement

This case was brought to the Committee by KillerChihuahua, who alleges the discussion over this American political group has degenerated into incivility. Evidence for the case was due by 20 March 2013, the workshop was to close on 27 March, and a proposed decision was scheduled for 3 April.

  • Under "other actions", the last item links to a clarification request that ended in March – two months ago. AGK [•] 15:29, 16 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]
    • The notifications in March, for instance here, said "The request is archived; however, an arbitrator is planning on offering an arbitrator motion 'very shortly'", but as far as I know, this has not been done. —Neotarf (talk) 16:03, 16 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]
      • By a happy coincidence, the follow-up to that clarification request was scheduled some time ago to take place this week. However, the original clarification surely does not belong in this week's arbitration report, given how stale it now is. AGK [•] 21:48, 16 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]
        • Not sure how happy it is, or how arb-staleness is measured, but I have noticed that anything with a discretionary sanctions component seems to be getting kicked down the road these days. —Neotarf (talk) 07:21, 17 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]
