ISAF Review Complaints About 34th America's Cup Jury"ISAF has received complaints about the 34th America's Cup Jury from Paul Henderson. The complaints concern alleged gross misconduct of the judges in how they conducted themselves. ISAF procedures require complaints to be reviewed to establish if there is a case to answer.
