Contempt Again

A recent comment or two have mentioned the contempt of court issue. I dealt with it here and I have little to add other than to say that the cutback in court staff often means that we have no way of dealing with disorder other than to retreat with all the dignity we can muster. A deliberate attempt to disrupt the court and interfere with justice calls for a prison sentence. Otherwise, it's best not to get too involved.

  1. Agreed, and that I suppose is the advantage of a mags courthouse where more than one court is sitting. Contempt in front of court A, move it next door to be dealt with.
