Family Investment v. Mach-1 Autogroup

Case No.: 30-2009-00126504    

Contempt Arraignment
Defendants’ 6/2/20 objections are overruled. (See Evid. Code, §§ 791, subd. (b), 1236.)
It might be helpful to review the procedure contemplated by a contempt proceeding:
1. Defendants initiated the contempt proceeding by serving an affidavit on 2/5/20. (Code Civ. Proc., § 1211, 1211.5.) 2. The contemnor is entitled to a reading of the charges, advisement of rights, and arraignment.
3. The arraignment was continued on 2/6/20 to 4/21/20, and then due to the COVID-19 closure to 6/15/20. 4. If the contemnor pleads guilty, the court will set the matter for sentencing. 5. If the contemnor pleads not guilty, the court will set the matter for a bench trial. 6. The court will not set future dates or conduct other hearings in this case until the contempt is resolved.
