From: "What ACBL Players should know about the 1997 Laws Changes" by Gary Blaiss, ACBL Chief Tournament Director.
'Everyone has always been told that North is responsible for (procedures at) the table. In reality, some people (such as North are more responsible than others. Law 7 is better worded to say that 'Any contestant remaining at a table throughout a session is primarily responsible for maintaining proper conditions of play at the table'. This is much better. We are all responsible, but stationary players are more responsible."
