Holkesvig v. Welte

No. 20120203

Per Curiam.

1] Randy Holkesvig appealed from a district court judgment finding him in contempt of court for failing to obey a court order, and awarding Peter Welte, Meredith Larson, and Chris Smith $1,000 as a remedial sanction. On appeal, Holkesvig argues that he did not intentionally, willfully, and inexcusably disobey the district court's order, argues that the district court abused its discretion, and raises numerous collateral issues. We summarily affirm the contempt issues under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(4). We summarily affirm the collateral issues Holkesvig has raised under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(1), and order Holkesvig to pay double costs and $1,000 in attorney fees for raising these issues in this appeal.
