It's a tricky one...
But the EU have noted the receipt of an extension request that they are now considering. As such, anything else that was sent was evidently a) of no consequence and b) not frustrating that request. Give that the qc had to sign off and he was under oath in court to comply, there cannot be anything in the other letters that were sent that could frustrate that else he and Boris would be in contempt of court, and he'd lose his job.
So, yes, Padfield does potentially mean that they could be found in contempt, but unless those additional letters result in a rejection of the extension request then I would expect the court to basically note it, and adjourn to make sure that they can step back in again should they have caused a problem.
