Explanation: suggested by my reliable friend Eichborn, with special reference to the Arbitration Act.
Might be a useful new term, especially because * Schiedsrichter * is already covered by arbitrator in your text.
hope this helps a little
Explanation: Since this isn't sport, the term "Schiedsrichter" doesn't really apply. What may apply is "Schiedsgericht" as this is a body of individuals which would undertake to make a decision in such cases. However, I feel "Schlichter" is more appropriate as your context leads me to believe, they are talking about one person only.
