|I’ll cut straight to the chase: I’m suing Jonathan “Jessica” Yaniv in civil court — and I need your help.
Earlier this week, Yaniv violently assaulted me outside a British Columbia courthouse. (You can see my exclusive footage of that incident at YanivTrial.com.)
But I think Yaniv made a huge mistake when he launched his testosterone-fuelled fit of rage on me.
He normally takes on immigrant women through the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal after they refuse to wax his testicles — oh, and he likes to send weird, predatory texts to young girls, some as young as 15 years old!
But while many of them can’t or won’t fight back against this menace, I’m not in that position. I am fighting back, and not just for myself, but for all of his victims:
I will cooperate with the RCMP’s criminal investigation into Yaniv’s assault on me, but the problem with that is, it’s ultimately in the hands of politically-sensitive police and prosecutors. They could agree to a plea bargain or even drop the charges outright, in response to political or media pressure — something Yaniv is very good at generating.
The only justice that is within my control is to start a civil lawsuit where I am the plaintiff — along with my fellow Rebel News reporter, David Menzies, who was also assaulted by Yaniv recently. (In that case, Yaniv actually attacked David with a cane!)
So, with the support of Rebel News, David and I will be commencing a civil lawsuit against Yaniv to make sure that he is held accountable for his actions.
The main point is to show Yaniv that he’s not allowed to physically assault journalists, even if he doesn’t like their questions. It is about self-respect, and it’s about deterring a serial harasser.
Depending on how it goes, this lawsuit could cost us as much as $40,000. But it’s about finally standing up to a bully who is so brazen that he actually felt confident attacking me, right outside a courthouse where he was already on trial for weapons offences. Someone’s got to finally stop him, and it looks like it has to be David and me.
If you can help us cover our legal bills, I’d be enormously grateful — please click here or visit YanivTrial.com to chip in.
This is about justice, and reining in a predator.
