No George, I doubt the NEC police would ever step foot on Rich's place let alone give him a ticket lol. All I can say is in all my years as an electrical design engineer neither myself or my super picky (as far as NEC was concerned) boss would ever allow a 240 volt motor (regardless if using a safety switch or combination starter etc) to be switched/controlled by only de energizing one of the two hot legs...
Of course, Rich or anyone is free to do as they please regardless if its NEC approved, HEY ITS A FREE COUNTRY SO YALL DO AS YOU LIKE. Its just safer to totally de energize BOTH legs on a 240 volt circuit and is how I was trained and how I practiced.
I think he said he already soldered the broken terminal and is using the two pole contactor so BOTH of the hot legs are switched off so he ought to be fine.
