 Contempt of Court
Indirect contempt poses a much greater challenge, because the accused contemnor is entitled both to fair advance notice of the charges and to a trial with almost every protection afforded a criminal defendant (the principal exception being the right to jury trial).
One cannot be held in contempt for violation of a court order unless there was a valid and enforceable order in force at the time the alleged contempt was committed.
There must be proof that the order upon which the contempt proceeding is based has been served upon the accused, or that he was present when the order was made, or that he had knowledge of it.

 contempt. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
Civil and criminal contempts are distinguished by the function of the punishment—if it is to vindicate judicial authority, the contempt is criminal; if it is to enforce the rights and remedies of a party, the contempt is civil.
A constructive contempt is one that is committed at a distance from the court and that tends to obstruct or defeat the administration of justice.
Direct criminal contempts may be punished summarily by fine or imprisonment; civil and constructive criminal contempts can also be punished by fine or imprisonment, but the accused must be granted a hearing.

 Salon | "Contempt"
"Contempt" evokes an era when the belief that movies mattered was an article of faith, when there seemed no turning back from the endless potential of movies, and when an eager (if not always large) audience existed for the directors ready to realize that potential.
"Contempt" is the sixth of the 15 movies he made between 1959 and 1967, a run still unequaled by any director since in its exploration -- and exhaustion -- of what movies could do.

 "Contempt Of Court" Defined & Explained
CONTEMPT OF COURT - Any willful disobedience to, or disregard of, a court order or any misconduct in the presence of a court; action that interferes with a judge's ability to administer justice or that insults the dignity of the court; punishable by fine or imprisonment or both.

This power of punishing for contempts is confined to punishment during the session of the legislature and cannot extend beyond it, and it seems this power cannot be exerted beyond imprisonment.

 Chicago Reader Movie Review
Though Contempt is about a good deal more than filmmaking, Godard's extended career as a film critic--which started in 1950 and continued well beyond the time of his early features--informs the movie at every turn.
If Contempt invents a new way of thinking about the world--combining the whole complicated business of shooting a movie with reflections on antiquity and modernity, love and filmmaking, sound and image, art and commerce, thoughts and emotions, and four different languages and cultures--it arrives at this vision mainly through a series of detours and roadblocks.

Contempt of court is any willful disobedience, or disregard, of a court order or any misconduct in the presence of a court; any action that interferes with a judge's ability to administer justice or that insults the court.
There are two basic types of contempt of court.  The first, often called direct or civil contempt, is when a person acts disruptive in a court room or treats the judge and attorneys rudely.  Usually a judge must first warn an offender prior to holding them in contempt of court.
The second form of contempt, called indirect or criminal contempt, is when a defendant fails to follow a court order, such as failing to pay child support or follow a restraining order.

 Bright Lights Film Journal | Contempt
Fans may have assumed "contempt" would be their own reaction to a Godard film that showed every earmark of a trashy Hollywood-style movie.
Even the source material, Alberto Moravia's novel Il Disprezzo, was suspect; Godard himself dismissed it as "a nice, vulgar read for a train journey." Rumors that the director had lobbied for Frank Sinatra and Kim Novak in the lead roles must have further jangled the nerves of cineastes.

But taken as an essay on the turbulent relationship of art, commerce, and love, Contempt remains one of the most eloquent and cohesive statements in the director's canon, a clear window into the mind of a prickly personality.
Much of Godard's contempt was reportedly directed at American producer Joseph Levine, who insisted the film be shot in Technicolor and Cinemascope (a nice concession, given Raoul Coutard's rapturous photography), and goaded Godard into inserting Bardot cheesecake after he turned in his original cut.
Typical of the director, he did what he was told, but achieved the opposite of the effect Levine intended: In an early scene, Bardot's luscious figure stretches across the entire frame, but the dialogue makes it clear that her body parts have been bartered piece by piece.

Godard appears to me to despise Hollywood, Hollywood producers, Hollywood films, his own producer, nude starlets, the film industry, Cinemascope, remakes of classic texts, mercenary writers, melodramatic cop-out endings, movie audiences, weak husbands and, especially, the type of wife who wants to have her cake and eat it.
