contempt of consent order being considered by court

In an April 2013 consent order signed by Nied, her neighbors and Ligonier Township officials, Foxley Farm owners agreed to hold 11 weddings through the end of 2013.
Nied's neighbors wanted the weddings to stop, saying the large events attended by as many as 200 guests caused noise and traffic congestion in the quiet countryside.
During a hearing earlier this year, Nied admitted she hosted 16 events in 2013 after approval of the consent order. During nearly four hours of testimony on Tuesday, she said Foxley Farm hosted at least two additional events this summer.
Attorney William Sittig, who represents the neighbors, said he wants the judge to fine Nied for violating the consent order.
“We're asking for the money she gained by throwing those weddings to pay for attorney fees,” Sittig said.
Feliciani said he will decide whether Nied is in contempt of the consent order after he receives written arguments from the attorneys within 40 days.
