arbitration proceedings
Explanation:
See the following extracts of web sites I have found concerning arbitration proceedings:

Article 32. In arbitration proceedings, the arbitration committee shall have the power to exclude any persons other than the parties and relevant witnesses.

(http://www.ufj.gol.com/special/labour.html)


... at the First Session of the Standing Committee of the Second National Congress of the ... Section 2. Organization. Chapter II. Arbitration Proceedings: ...

According to the EuroDicAutom "arbitration committee" is "Spruchstelle" in German.

Explanation:
I'm note sure of the term, but I found the following websites which should help you further in your research on it:
Minority Shareholders Bill of Rights:
http://www.poynerspruill.com/infocenter/General_Corporate/mi...


Along with detailed country-by-country analyses of proxy voting practices and minority shareholder rights, the study includes quick-reference tables comparing shareholder rights in the different EU countries :
http://www.irrc.org/press_releases/04282000gssdsw.html

A SPECIAL leave petition (SLP) has been filed by a minority shareholder of the State Bank of India (SBI) in the Supreme Court on the contentious issue of shareholder voting rights in the country's largest commercial bank. The petition, challenging the relevant contents of SBI Act '55 and SBI Regulations, was admitted by the apex court this month.
http://216.34.146.179/110200/11indu03.htm

Historically, the most significant legal weapon of an abused minority shareholder to protect his rights is a stockholder derivative action, which allows a minority shareholder to sue on behalf of the corporation to protect against abuses by the officers, directors, or majority shareholders

Appeal


Explanation:
Here's a web reference confirming what my initial reaction had been, but it took me some time to ferret it out.

The German version of the company's web site:
http://www.gea-ag.de/HOMED.HTML
06.12.1999 Spruchstellenverfahren beim Aktientausch mg-GEA

The English version:
http://www.gea-ag.de/3_E/3_SE.HTML
06.12.1999 Appeal Against the mg-GEA Share Exchange

This is obviously just someone's translation, you might want to wait and see if there are any legal experts out there who know more details.
HTH, Beth
