A huge debate of a gray area

A huge debate of a gray area

Here is the situation:

Your object ball is pocketed. The cue ball then pockets an OPPONENTS ball, is it a foul thus turning the inning to the opponent? or does the current player continue with his turn?

Any advise on this matter would be greatly appreciated. If you could prove a reference or a link to a official rule posted somewhere that would be extremely helpful in this current debate. SO far, I have found no such rule posted.

Thank you all for your responses!

This question relates to the following billiard rules:

    No, it is not a foul. At least in the APA. As long as your OB is made what the CB does or does not do is out of ones control unless position play is a factor. The only time it would be a foul is if the 8 ball goes in. I am talking 8 and 9 ball here. You do not mention what game you are debating.

    It is not a foul, unless you are playing an odd game like 1-15. You made the ball you called in the pocket you called--your inning continues. BCA rules web site


    In 1-15 the 1 ball must go in the left side pocket and the 15 must go in the right side pocket (looking towards the rack). If you cause the other guys 1 or 15 to move it is loss of turn--but not a foul (no BIH).
