I get why they wanted to charge James Kimsey with contempt for ghostwriting on behalf of purportedly pro se litigants. Indeed, I'm happy they have it a shot. Even though, as the Ninth Circuit holds, you can't do that.
They should have just charged Kimsey with the unauthorized practice of law. But that's a state charge, so would require that the district attorney get motivated, rather than the U.S. Attorney.
Good luck with that.
