German term or phrase: Gl.
Decision of a Swiss (Zurich) Tribunal - in heading:

Schiedsgericht Gl.

Beschluss vom

Summary of answers provided
naGL = Kanton Glarussamsi
naGL ( Canton Glarus)Uschi (Ursula) Walke

GL ( Canton Glarus)

I'm not sure if I understand the context, so this is only a suggestion based on the following:

GL = Kanton Glarus
ZH = Kanton Zürich
GE = Genf, BE = Bern etc.

Switzerland has 26 cantons (states!).
Each canton has its own laws and courts.

I wonder if the Court in Zurich is referring to a previous decision made in Glarus. It gets quite complicated if the opponents reside in different cantons.
The Supreme court is in Lausanne.

Please have a look at
(introduction to Swiss Legal System)
it might shed some light.
HTH and good luck.

Switzerland is divided into 26 Kantone, which would be "counties".
GL is an abrev. of the county "Glarus"
