Why go to Matt when you're talking about germans and have a german who
_was_ tried in that california court right here? :)

The actual procedure was not a contempt of court thing, but rather a 
so-called "entry of default" aka "we find you guilty because you didn't 
fly halfway across the globe for us". 
In my eyes, that's at least as stupid.
