Contempt of court is a familiar term in legal parlance and is actually used to classify quite a wide-ranging series and varieties of offences by any person or persons against the authority of the courts, the judicial system and the rule of law at large. The power of contempt of court actually implies the power of the courts to punish such offences which challenge the authority of the courts to a greater or lesser degree.Full article "Contempt of Court - an overview"
