Ruling Comes Down in the Alex Jones Sandy Hook Case

2

A Connecticut judge found Infowars owner Alex Jones liable in a defamation case brought by families of the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre.

Mr. Jones spread a conspiracy narrative that the murder of the children and adults in Sandy Hook was a false flag operation.

The judge in the case ruled that because Jones failed to produce documents he had been ordered to hand over by the court, including his financial records, he was liable by default, The New York Times reported on Monday.

The families of ten of the victims sued him for saying it was a hoax, a staged event with crisis actors to build opposition against the 2nd Amendment.

The families have argued Jones has profited off of lies about the shooting.

When Bridgeport Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis sanctioned Jones in the Connecticut case, she called his on-air statements about the shooting “indefensible,” “unconscionable” and “possibly criminal behavior.”

In a statement issued on Monday, a law firm that represents the Sandy Hook families said they were “grateful” for the ruling but remain “focused on uncovering the truth” about Jones’s activities.

“As the Court noted, Alex Jones and his companies have deliberately concealed evidence of the relationship between what they publish and how they make money,” the lawyers said. “Mr. Jones was given every opportunity to comply but, when he chose instead to withhold evidence for more than two years, the Court was left with no choice but to rule as it did today. While today’s ruling is a legal victory, the battle to shed light on how deeply Mr. Jones has harmed these families continues.”

Jones was held responsible in two lawsuits from a Texas judge in September.

Jones called the Texas ruling a devastating blow to the 1st Amendment.

“Nothing less than the fundamental right to speak freely is at stake in these cases,” the statement read. “It is not overstatement to say the first amendment was crucified today.”

Jones always said the killings happened, but he cited suspicious events. There are so many. There were 2 other possible gunmen at the scene. The method of entry was not exposed. The gun first claimed to be used was in the truck of the accused, so could not have been used. The state made a law just after the event making it legal to withhold the death certificates. An autopsy doctor made wild statements to the press,

An emotional reaction to children dying does not justify blaming Jones for something.

His financial records are not relevant to the case. The left wants to be able to go after everyone he is associated with. They did the same to Trump.

Those are greedy people wanting money from Jones.

The Kabuki is wildly entertaining from the agent in place Jones, almost as fun as this 007 wallpaper rotation.
The NDAA authorized deep fakes, false flags, fake news, because any means justifies the ends of the Global Soviet gulag Bidenville serf plantation.
You’ll own nothing and like it, comrade, get in the pod, eat the bugs, yes we can!
Sean Connery is not amused though as those blessed with the gift can see right through real lies.
Thank You God.
