I guess "all" is not redundant but misplaced and changes the meaning.

B-1: Ted, Dan, Diane and I were all cited for contempt of court - all modifies "cited". this means "all cited" is somthing such as "cited". so the meaning is altered.

B-2: Ted, Dan, Diane and I, all, were cited for contempt of court - all means "Ted, Dan, Diane and I".

D should be it.

I disagree. I feel that all is redundant. T, D, D and I = all. We don't need to explicitly state all again.

Tiger,

I did not understand your explanation on B-1

I chose D because I thought "all" was redundant in B . Butthe OA is B. Still figuring out why "all" is required .

my two cents on why B can be correct:

The original sentence uses the word "all" though it incorrectly uses "me".
All, x,y and z were cited, emphasies the fact that 3/3 were cited.
though 'x,y and z were cited' in correct, it merely states that '(some)3 guys were cited.'

As GMAT always prefer the answer choice that is grammatically correct and does not change the meaning (here:emphasis) of the original sentence, B is correct.

A and E are grammatically incorrect.
and C and D does not emphasis the fact that "all" were cited.

But in real exam, I too would have confused between B and C and ended up picking C....(as I always do )
