If any actual loss or injury to a party in an action or special proceeding, prejudicial
to the person's right therein, is caused by such contempt, the court or officer, in
addition to the fine or imprisonment imposed therefor, may order the person guilty
of the contempt to pay the party aggrieved a sum of money sufficient to indemnify
the party and satisfy the party's costs and expenses, including a reasonable attorney's
fee incurred in the prosecution of such contempt, which order, and the acceptance
of money thereunder, shall be a bar to an action for such loss and injury.
