In re Foreclosure of the Deed of Trust of Johnson In this foreclosure action, respondent had seven weeks after he filed a pro se appeal, and five weeks after he received notice of the hearing of his appeal, to hire a lawyer. At the hearing, respondent claimed to have hired an attorney who was prevented from appearing by a death in the family, but respondent admitted that he had not paid the attorney to represent him.
