Wisconsin Court of Appeals


Family — contempt

Raymond Jerome Novotny appeals from the circuit court’s denial of his motion to hold his former wife in contempt of court for failing to pay real estate taxes and foreclosure costs he claims she owes based, in part, on an August 2011 stipulation. The circuit court, after examining both the stipulation and the transcript from the hearing discussing it, found that Patricia Kay Novotny was not in contempt of court because she did not owe Raymond the money. We agree with the circuit court’s interpretation and affirm. We also deny Patricia’s motion to impose sanctions for a frivolous appeal. This opinion will not be published.
