- The Committee declined two cases on May 2, the first focusing on SashiRolls and the second relating to Future Perfect at Sunrise. It also declined a dispute over bad music.
- Last month, the Arbitration Committee opened Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Enigmaman. On May 6 the case was closed, with Enigmaman being desysopped.
- The Committee ends the month with two open cases: Rama and Canadian politics.
As of publication, the Committee has four open requests for clarification or amendment: a request for clarification regarding Palestine–Israel articles, a request for clarification regarding BLP issues on British politics articles, an amendment request relating to DS alerts, and an amendment request regarding Arbitration Enforcement decisions.
This month, BU Rob13 decided to step down from the Arbitration Committee, as well as "semi-retire" from Wikipedia as a whole. On a brighter note, Bradv was appointed as a full clerk of the Committee. The bot that they have created, ArbClerkBot, was also approved by the Bot Approvals Group.
Both BU Rob13 and Ivanvector have written essays related to their decisions:
