Translation: 

Rabbi Brom was also a Dayan (judge) who from time to time needed to arrange court trials.

He did so with Rabbi Breish ZT"L who was the Rabbi of the Agudas Achim community in Zurich [community of Eastern European (Ost Juden) disciples and oppositionists].

Despite the tension between local Jews and Eastern Jews, they shared great love and appreciation to one another.

More info: 

Rabbi Shmuel (Samuel) Brom ZT”L was the Rabbi of Lucerne. He was a great and wise scholar.
