Going pro se into my case I found a lot of good information on this site and others. I was pretty sure if I lost my motion to dismiss and lost my summary judgment I would at least have a good argument on appeal. I just realized that I would have to post a bond to appeal. Well, I really wouldn't have to post a bond to appeal, but if I didn't I couldn't get a stay of the judgment. Where would that leave me???? If I get a judge that totally disregards the law (which we all know never happens) and I appeal, they sell my house, even if the case is reversed and remanded what difference does it make? My house is sold. This kind of takes away my due process. While not restricting my appeal they really are because the appeal is meaningless if I don't have a house. Anyone have any experience with the bond so they can get a stay for appeal?
