Notes of Decisions

Contempt proceeding instituted under these sections for husband's failure to pay spousal support pursuant to dissolution decree is separate proceeding from dissolution and trial court's jurisdiction to hold husband in contempt was therefore not defeated by husband's appeal from dissolution decree. Oliver and Oliver, 81 Or App 115, 724 P2d 869 (1986), Sup Ct review denied

Choice-of-evils defense could not exonerate defendants charged with contempt for violating injunction arising from demonstration to prevent abortions because defense is available only if defendants' necessary conduct is not inconsistent with other provisions of law. Downtown Women's Center v. Advocates for Life, Inc., 111 Or App 317, 826 P2d 637 (1992)

Contempt proceedings are not subject to laws governing venue for criminal proceedings. Bachman v. Bachman, 171 Or App 665, 16 P3d 1185 (2000), Sup Ct review denied
