Court’s Own Investigation Causes Reversal

The Fourth District Court today reversed a finding of contempt in Albert v. Rogers, in part due to the Court’s modification of visitation without a pleading seeking that relief, as well as the Court’s decision to call the children’s school and speak to an unknown individual to check up on the testimony of the alleged contemnor.  Because of the independent investigation, the Fourth District also directed that the proceedings occur before a different Judge.
