Contempt: New Court of Appeals case

Yesterday The Indiana Court of Appeals handed down an opinion on contempt. The case's name is Paternity of J.T.I., Elisabeth A. Irvin v. Delenore Q. Guyton.

Amazingly, the trial court found the mother in contempt even though the father wholly failed to comply with Indiana Code Section 34-47-3-5 which governs indirect contempt cases.

File this one away as an example of when an appeal is necessary.

I suggest you might want read other articles I have posted on contempt by clicking below this post on "Label: contempt."
