Strong club duplicate.  All four players at table are solid flight A players.  North-South are vulnerable.

West's double was alerted and explained upon request by North as a support double.

South thought for 20 seconds and fiddled with the bidding box cards before passing 2S.

The break in tempo and fiddling with the bidding box by South are agreed to by all. 

As it turns out, 3H makes on the nose, and 2S makes on the nose.

The director rules score stands, and it is appealed.  Lo and behold, this club actually has three players qualified to form a committee.

You're on the committee.  Your ruling?

Score stands.
Board is rolled back to 2S making.
Board is rolled back to 2S making, and North is lucky it's not a tournament and he won't face further punishment for egregious use of UI.
Some other ruling (please explain in comments)
