Contempt of Court: When
is it Appropriate?
Attached is the California Judges Contempt Handbook describing
when contempt is appropriate or inappropriate. Gary L. Zerman,
JAIL4Judges attorney, deems it appropriate that information be
posted on the internet in light of how "Contempt of Court" is
being thrown around liberally by judges these days. A pertenant
jurisdictional issue is whether the particular contempt is
criminal or civil.

See the below e-mail (which apparently did not go thru,
as I got a message stating such), and the attachment (judges
handbook re contempt).
If you can, resend it to your group. GLZ.
