There’s some minor news in the legal ventures of Miriam Yaniv and Ilana Altmann, mother and aunt to Jessica Yaniv Simpson.
First, they were scheduled for a first appearance in court earlier this week. There was one earlier appearance but Andrew Coulthard appeared on their behalf and asked for an adjournment so he could finalize terms with Legal Aid BC to represent them. It’s unclear whether or not that went through because nobody at all appeared for Yaniv and Altmann this week.
It could be that Coulthard was busy or forgot. He did that once to JY. Or it could be that he isn’t representing them.
Because of the non-appearance, a new hearing is scheduled for August 3, 2021. If Yaniv and Altmann do not appear at this hearing, Crown will file for, and likely receive, a warrant for their arrest. If they do appear, it’s back to business as usual – expect a date to be set for the parties to exchange particulars and enter a plea.
In related news, the strata that Miriam sued with legal advocate Jessica Yaniv Simpson, and then re-filed against jointly, has filed an amended reply to them. It basically says all the same things and adds Jon’s name. The PDF is below.
