04/25/2000Order/ProceduralFiled Order. As of this date, respondents have not retained new counsel nor has a response to the order to show cause been filed with this court. In view of respondents' failure to participate in this appeal, we must conclude that they have abandoned their defense rights in this matter. Accordingly, this appeal shall proceed solely on appellant's opening brief and appendix. Appellant shall have 15 days from the date of this order to file and serve a transcript request form or certificate of no transcript request, and 90 days to file and serve the opening brief and appendix. On May 21, 1999, a stipulation was filed purporting to substitute Barbara Murphy for respondent Barbara Schmidt as trustee and then purporting to dismss Barbara Murphy from this appeal. In view of respondents' abandonment of their defense in this appeal and the ambiguous nature of the stipulation, we disapprove the stipulation. 00-06682
