Honestly folks, I can only describe this as a colossal and monumental failure on the part of Expedia’s lawyer. According to everything we can compile from legal documents, social media sources, and our sources, it seems that Jessica Yaniv Simpson is likely to collect the $5,000 from his ludicrous claim against Expedia in the BC Civil Resolution Tribunal.
The legal documents below show that Yaniv’s case has been finalized in the CRT and he has applied for an enforcement order from the BC Provincial Court, something the CRT says must be done to make their order enforceable.
We previously predicted that there was zero chance Yaniv could collect this. Our reasoning was that he filed for a default judgment, which Expedia could have overturned. And they almost did.
According to sources, and apparently confirmed by JY’s social media activity, Expedia’s lawyer CHOSE to delay their response to JY’s default judgment and instead went on vacation.
Yes. They went on vacation.
The CRT was having no part of this and they denied Expedia claim to have it overturned, saying they should have followed the rules and acted in their allowed time. The CRT even stated that Expedia’s counter argument, which we don’t have, had merit, but it wasn’t filed in time, so tough beans. If I was JY, I would be laughing all the way to the bank.
Like we said earlier…colossal fucking failure on the part of Expedia.
Quick note…we don’t have the doc, but our source says that Expedia’s argument was that JY was not an employee but rather a subcontractor, or an employee of a subcontractor. The CRT said that had Expedia filed this response on time, it likely would have had merit and affected the case, but rules are rules.
Having said all of that, I have to be fair and give the point to JY. He played the system and he won. Is it a fair and honest win? No, but it’s within the rules set by the system and he played them and he’ll very likely add $5,000 to his bank account (plus interest, etc.).
Now that I’ve given JY that little bit, I have to add that $5K is beans compared to the debt he’s racked up, and it won’t do much to compensate for the fact that he’s unskilled, unemployable, and poisonous to the community. So let him have his $5K. He’ll burn through it paying for a gadget or two, or countless Skip the Dishes meals, or maybe a few grand towards a credit card.
Last note….I found it interesting that Jessica Yaniv Simpson, a renowned failure at every other thing he’s every tried, used the domain name “SimpsonLitigationDOTcom” for his service email address. That should tell you what he has planned in the future – more vexatious litigation.
I hope the Expedia story can be shared with every future employer. This is what JY will try to do to you.

All the rest of us can do is avoid using the services of expedia and their subs (Vrbo, Hotels.com, Hotwire.com, Orbitz, Travelocity, trivago & CarRentals.com). I’m not going to support a company that stupid and that puts money in yaniv’s pocket.
And WTF is up with that fat slob registering the domain simpsonlitigation.com? That has to somehow violate the BC Legal Profession’s act or the rules/codes from the Law Society of BC. Nice one jon, way to look like a horse’s ass in front of the professional body you want to join some day.
Until it has the cheque in its fat, dirty, greasy little fingers it hasn’t won anything beyond writing on a piece of paper.
One more comment…It appears the Jabba the Hut is moving away from the Small Claims court system where they are known by the judges and most likely 1 suit away from being labelled a vexatious litigator. Instead, it is using the CRT where everything is done online and they never have to ooze out of their fairy princess bedroom to sue people for money.
JY thinks its acceptable to sue a company for a bad experience, or bad service. With that in mind, we should be able to file a class action lawsuit against Miriam Yaniv, for her involvement in the creation of JY. If one were to use the Yaniv playbook as guidance, this would be a justifiable action given that nobody has ever had a positive or encouraging encounter with JY.
He sues for what he perceives as bad service or experience. In the same way he perceives he’s a woman.
He won’t live long enough to spend the money I reckon, just got this feeling.
[email protected] is a fake email address and slmpsonlltigation.com is not a registered domain. Probably created with a spoof/fake email generator. Yaniv is trolling the courts and the public through court docs now lol
Not exactly “fake”, it does go to a mailbox that he responds to (I tried it and got a reply…could be the start of a catfish but candidly I don’t have the time nor inclination to let that pimple into my life…even a fake one). While jon doesn’t have the site’s DNS record pointing to anything live that he used that domain on a form for the Courts is questionably ethically but jon is questionable in every regard.
20+ year attorney here weighing in.
First, for a company like expedia, $5k is not “colossal” and indeed it is chump change. Now I ‘m not sure if this matter was handled “in house” or sent to outside counsel–I’m guessing the former because the amount at issue is so small–corps like this fart $5,000 bills. That said, this will definitely show up on someone’s semi-annual performance review and it won’t raise the fucking-up attorney’s score–because if a mistake like this could happen with a $5,000 case, it could also happen with a much more significant case. If perchance outside counsel was at fault, the bill will be wiped and probably $5,000 will be credited to expedia’s account.
Now if the defendant were an insurer rather than expedia, this never would have been allowed to happen (at least in about 80 per cent of insurance companies cases). If anyone is going to get down into the dirt and spend $100,000 to make sure someone doesn’t win $5,000 through fraud, it’s going to be an insurance company–because these have learned long since that in the long run, encouraging people to treat fraudulent claims like a kind of free lottery is a good way to wind up going out of business. Once you’ve shot a few dead, the rest tend to go seek easier game.
In sum–sure, it sucks for all of us to see the FATTEST PEDOPHILE WHO EVER LIVED score a “win” through some dumbshit’s negligence, but it is NOT a “huge” victory and it is not very likely to be repeated.
Just one Yale Law School graduate’s opinion, of course.
This is great insight! Thank you! I stand by colossal, only for that simple fact that it was so easily avoided and it’s going to fuel Jonny’s abuse of the system further.
Chump change for the rest of us is actually his biggest win.
Hey Winnie NC…great summary here-but it looks like John Boy is jealous and doesn’t appreciate your comprehensive feedback(hence the single ”thumbs down” to your comment). Yaniv can only DREAM about being a Yale graduated attorney…and I’m pretty certain, he actually really does…!
I for one am happy about this as JV may get cocky and up the game and end up having to pay out big in costs.
