Alex Jones Found Liable in All Four Defamation Cases Filed by Sandy Hook Victim Families

On Monday, Infowars chief Alex Jones was found liable on all four Connecticut defamation cases filed by the families of the children killed during the Sandy Hook school shooting.

The Associated Press reported that Connecticut Judge Barbara Bellis entered a default judgment against Jones because he refused to follow court orders to turn over court ordered documents. Because of Jones’ “failure to produce critical material information that the plaintiffs needed to prove their claims,” the judge found Jones was liable and will be forced to pay a fortune in damages to the families.

Attorneys for the families said that Jones violated court orders by refusing to hand over the the documents that could show if Jones made money off his efforts to push his claims about the Sandy Hook shooting being a “false flag” operation.

“Their pattern of defying and ignoring court orders to produce responsive information is well established,” the family lawyers said in July.

Jones’s attorneys denied that Infowars and Free Speech Systems had violated any court orders. But the families disagreed, saying, “Their pattern of defying and ignoring court orders to produce responsive information is well established.”

This week’s ruling is on top of the three rulings last month that found Jones liable for damages brought by ten victims of the Sandy Hook shooting.

Jones spent years claiming that the 2012 murders of 20 children at Sandy Hook Elementary was a staged, false flag operation and that no one was actually killed. He later claimed he suffered from a “psychosis” and that while some of his claims were wrong, “but they were never wrong consciously to hurt people.”

Juries on Connecticut and Texas will next decide how much Jones must pay.
