contempt in all courts of record in Indiana except the supreme court.

held to embrace, limit, or control any proceeding against any officer
or party for contempt for the enforcement of civil rights and
(c) IC 34-47-2 and IC 34-47-3 do not apply to any case where any
person has been personally served with notice to appear and testify
as a witness in any court in Indiana in any civil or criminal case. A
