Arbitrator

(Played by Joseph Campanella)

A Federation legal official on Earth who is empowered to hear the disputed copyright case in 2377 between publisher Broht and the Voyager EMH over the Doctor's holo-novel, "Photons Be Free." With the Doctor's status at issue, and his crewmates testifying via long-range viewer, the Arbitrator eventually declares that while he cannot find the EMH as a "person" under the law, he can declare him the "artist" who has been harmed, and rules in his favor for a recall of the contested copies.
