I suspect my ex husband is sharing information with my new husband's ex wife in order to enhance both of their cases. Can I bring a contempt motion against him?

    Answered . The First Amendment guarantees freedom of speach. Unless what is being shared is legally protected information, there is nothing you can do about it. If there is information in your case which is truly confidential, you will need to seek a court order to limit its disclosure. Otherwise, people are free to talk to each other.

    Answered . Contempt is a sanction through which a court enforces its own orders. Bringing a contempt motion requires first an allegation that a specific order has been entered, and then that the order was violated, with a description of the circumstances. Without those initial allegations, a contempt motion is frivolous and the movant risks sanctions.

    What you have described sounds like almost predictable human behavior. Except for defining crimes, the law is not well-suited to regulating human behavior.
