In Civil-Contempt Cases, Jail Time Can Stretch On for Years

Ah, my favorite legal topic covered over in the WSJ…civil contempt. If you get into court much and thus need to deal with entering orders and inevitably enforcing orders ya better know your 4 types of contempt and how to get them and how to defend them.

I once filed a motion for civil contempt. Mr. Smarty-Pants UVA Law School argued against it for his bum client. As a conclusion, he said, "Your honor, they should not get attorneys fees in this case either because they're not really asking for civil contempt but criminal."

I guess he thought that argument would cap his brilliance, but the judge said, "Take the defendant into custody, bailiff."

That was one of my "can't believe what I just saw lawyer moments."
