Contempt of court Civil contempt. The Court of Protection considered, among other things, an application for the committal for 27 contempts of a solicitor and the firm of which she was a member, which were brought by F, who was the applicant nephew of a person whose affairs had been managed by the court. The court held that F's applications had not been made properly, that it would not extend its discretion to consider them and that they were entirely without merit. It further ordered that an extended civil restraint order would be made against F for two years with regard to the relevant proceedings.
