After a Palm Beach County Circuit judge found her in civil contempt, the chief financial officer of Boies Schiller & Flexner could face a year in jail if found guilty on criminal contempt charges arising from a long-running dispute between two landscaping companies.

Last week, Judge Amy Smith found Palm Beach, Fla., landscaper Amy Habie, who is also officially the chief financial officer of Armonk, N.Y.-based Boies Schiller & Flexner, in civil contempt for violating a previous court order to not contact any protected clients of Scott Lewis’ Gardening & Trimming Inc. The judge found that Habie, who owns Nical of Palm Beach, had 17 phone contacts with a Lewis client during the time the client was on the court-ordered protected list.
