Jury Waiver. Each party acknowledges and agrees that any controversy which may arise under these Official Rules is likely to involve complicated and difficult issues and, therefore, each such party irrevocably and unconditionally waives any right it may have to a trial by jury in respect of any legal action arising out of or relating to these Official Rules and the conduct of the parties related thereto.
