2.10.1 Official Review. A team request for a review of an Official’s decision. There is no limit to the type of objection brought up during an official review.

Today's rule comes from the Official Reviews section of the rules. This is a brand new section in the most recent version of the rules. This rule helps explain what can be brought up in an official review. According to the rule, there is no restriction on what may be reviewed in an official review. While this seems an odd rule to have, it appears to be in response to questions about what may be reviewed in an official review, such as penalties, points, mistakes by officials, other calls in question, etc. Now, the fact that there is no restriction on what can be asked to be review in an official review doesn't mean that a review will be found in favor of the team requesting it.

Note that while this rule puts no restriction on what can be reviewed in an official, rule 2.10.3 limits the topic of an official review to only the prior jam. This is not a limit of the type of objection that may be brought up in an official review. So long as the type of action under review happened in the previous jam, it will be reviewed by the officials.
