51. Contempt of Court orders don't require a deadline or any action, just the appearence that you

intend to refuse to comply with a court order.


If Husted had stated, as he did here, that he was going to refuse a court order then he would have been put into contempt, even if the deadline for action had not yet happened.

You can be put in contempt of court for the way you dress, or speak in court, it doesn't require an action.

If Husted thought that the order would not be upheld by the appeals court then the only legal alternative for him is to get a stay. Absence an order from a court staying this court's order then any elected official must follow the order of a court. Issuing a directive to not comply with the court based on your perception of a future action by another court is still showing contempt for this court.

He would have been found in contempt of court.

He knows it and that is why he folded absence a stay he definitely would have been found in contempt (although not necessarily held in custody).

Again contempt of court does not require a deadline to be passed but simply the intention not to follow an order, if he had so stated that in court he would have been charged with contempt.
