In order to prove civil contempt, your opponent must show
« on: Feb 01, 2005, 03:09:37 PM »
In order to prove civil contempt, your opponent must show clearly and convincingly that there was a valid court order in place, that you knew of the order, and that you willfully and with conscious disregard, violated the order.

I was given this sentense more than once as to how contempt works (as far as for the judge to take a decision)

What are your toughts on this? what's your experience? is it true (really for once inocent unless proven guilty) or is it the opposite?
