I believe it is a civil matter. Unfortunately I have to get the details through my mother because my sisters sig other doesn't want anyone to know whats going, so I'm sure she won't talk to me about it. Most of the info I was given might not even be correct. Basically, the deal is my "brother in law" we'll call him in a contractor, works on houses etc. This woman claims he screwed up her house and tried to sue him in Fairfax County and the judge threw the case out. So she went to Loudon County, same thing, now she's brought him to Faquier which is the county this whole incident happened in to begin with and the first thing the judge did was throw him in jail for what sounded to me like Contempt of court. Now I know my bro-in-law can be a smart ass but I know he'd never be a smart ass in court. Eventually the people my bro-in-law works for found out whats going on and apparently this lady has tried doing this numerous times to not only their company, but a few others. It sounds like she gets her living off of suing people. I wish I could provide more details but I can't. And I wish our family could afford to get him a good lawyer, considering they already gave a lawyer 6 grand it he didn't even appear the day the judge threw him in jail...at least thats what I've been told. Keep in mind this is passed down info which could be totally wrong.
