May 27, 2015

STEPHEN JOSEPH JOHNSON [#88888], 69, of Auburn, was suspended from the practice of law for 90 days and ordered to take the MPRE and comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. He was also placed on two years’ probation and faces a two-year suspension if he does not comply with the terms of his disciplinary probation. The order took effect May 27, 2015.

Johnson was experiencing financial trouble and filed five bankruptcy petitions to thwart creditors and retain control of his property in Meadow Vista, failing to disclose his prior unsuccessful petitions when filing the new ones. In addition, he claimed that a trustee’s sale of the property violated an automatic stay, when in fact the court had lifted the stay, and failed to report sanctions and an order to show cause to the State Bar.

In mitigation, Johnson was suffering from emotional/physical difficulties, severe emotional distress and family problems at the time of his misconduct. He also entered into a prefiling stipulation with the State Bar and had no prior record of discipline.
