WI Court of Appeals – District II
Case Name: Nicole A. Gomez v. David Leszcynski
Case No.: 2016AP47
Officials: Neubauer, C.J.
Focus: Contempt – Attorney Fees
David Leszczynski appeals from an order dated December 21, 2015, finding him in contempt of court for failing to purge himself of certain conditions imposed by a prior order, sentencing him to ninety days in jail unless he paid $81,576 in arrears for Section 71 payments and child support, and awarding his former wife, Nicole A. Gomez, attorney fees. After thirty days, the circuit court released Leszczynski from jail. We conclude that the circuit court properly found that Leszczynski was in contempt and awarded Gomez attorney fees, and that he was not denied the opportunity to present evidence. Thus, we affirm and remand to the circuit court for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.
