Special Referee List
Special Referees can be called in place of using an on-site Appeals Committee at USCF tournaments to deal with player appeals of TD decisions or rulings. The have the authority to act and rule in place of an Appeals Committee.
A Special Referee is and experienced USCF National Tournament Director. Some Special Referees are also International Arbiters (IA). FIDE does not have a Special Referee so anyone on this list with the IA title may only be able to give advice on FIDE tournament matters but not make a final ruling.
