Other possible phrasing:

events in dispute, incidents in dispute, disputed events, disputed incidents.

It is difficult to tell without seeing more extensive portions of the text, but it is possible also that the phrase means not the events or incidents, but the facts. In that case, the translation of the phrase would be:

the facts under dispute, the facts in dispute, the disputed facts.

Another expression commonly used in legal language is \"contested,\" which means the same thing as \"disputed.\" If you decide to use this word, the possiblities would be:

the contested facts, the contested events, the contested incidents.

The choice would depend on the context, which I don\'t have.
