Do any Canadians know how much it would cost Yaniv to take this to the BC Supreme Court? I'm guessing that would take a real lawyer charging real money, right? It seems like going to any Supreme Court is going to cost more than the 6000 Canada bucks that he's currently complaining he can't afford.
Also, it's amusing because Yaniv said he made 'three figures' a day at the BCHRT. Which makes it hard to then claim he can't afford 6000 CAD in costs.
If he’s self-represented it will cost him about $400 in the various filing fees. As far as I know the Court wouldn’t award costs to the HRT when Yaniv loses. The Court might award costs to the represented women if the matter isn’t immediately dismissed (which it likely will be).
Just a note - BC Supreme Court isn’t like the Supreme Court of a state. It’s just the superior trial court of the province and is one of the lower levels of court. It deals with serious criminal and civil cases as well as random other things like wills and judicial review of administrative tribunals. If Yaniv has the balls, she could appeal to two more levels of courts.
Technically Yaniv could make three figures a day working 8 hours at minimum wage ($13.85/hr) in BC, so for once she’s probably not lying.
