I walked out of a anti harassment hearing and was charged

Customer Question

I walked out of a anti harassment hearing and was charged with contempt. I was not compelled by subpoena to be there
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Washington
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: I was sent a summons for contempt
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: The judge was rambling his findings to disregard everything I said. The paralegal ourse at Whatcom community college advised me of our new standard of proof "allegations."
