I could suggest that trouble is related to custom field "Approver List". Try to check values for this field. I usually use this SQL query:

Select
	customfield.*
	, customfieldvalue.*
from
	customfield
	join customfieldvalue	
		join jiraissue	
		on	customfieldvalue.ISSUE = jiraissue.ID
	on	customfield.ID = customfieldvalue.CUSTOMFIELD
where
	customfield.ID = 11900

Try to find any nulls for this field values (table customfieldvalue)

This widget could not be displayed.

So when I check the list for approver list (ID is 20503) by the provided query. Got the following columns with null (defaultvalue, fieldtype, project, issuetype, parentkey, numbervalue, textvalue, datevalue, valuetype) and following columns with not null value (ID, customfieldtypekey,CUSTOMFIELDSEARCHERKEY,cfname, description, id, issue, customfield, stringvalue) .
I think if STRINGVALUE is there it should not cry !
