In re Coppock, 080093

In a contempt action which ex-wife violated divorce decree enjoining "coarse or offensive" communications with ex-husband, petition for writ of habeas corpus is granted and order of contempt is set aside as void where: 1) the injunctive provision in issue was less than clear as what constituted "coarse or offensive" communication; and 2) the underlying judgment lacked decretal language necessary for enforcement by contempt.
