Misinformation Law 21
Another one raised by me.
Law 21 B 1 (a) allows a player to change a call if the Director judges that the decision to make the call could well have been influenced by misinformation....
Law 21 B 3 allows/requires the Director to award an adjusted score 'when it is too late to change a call' and the offending side gained an advantage.
Law 21 B 1 (a) makes no reference to the Director awarding an adjusted score.
The way I interpret the law, if the Director is called when a player of the non-offending side is in time to change his call because his partner has not yet called and the Director offers this choice, but the player chooses not to do so, the matter ends there; he cannot later, at the end of play, call the Director and claim damage because law 21 B 1 (a) only allows the Director to offer a change of call, nothing else.
The non-offending side can only be given the benefit of an adjusted score if the misinformation was corrected when it was too late for the player to change his call.
