228 JudgmentIn the enforcement of a judgment entered in equity, a trial judge is limited only by due process, in scope of its process, and, because liberty is the core value of the republic, in civil contemnor’s ability to purge himself of contempt by compliance; other than those restraints, the ability of the trial court to enforce its decree is fettered only by a lack of imagination.
