Social Sciences - Social Science, Sociology, Ethics, etc. / Report on
German term or phrase: Schmälzle
This is a report, which requests that the information be blocked or sealed, on a woman in a battered women's shelter. What I am translating is at the very top:

Sachbearbeitung: Schmälzle

I have translated the first word to processing... but have no clue what the other one is, and have looked in three dictionaries... In google, it appears quite commonly as a last name, is that what it is?

I will feel very silly, probably, when you answer...
