Alex Jones speaks out in second Sandy Hook defamation lawsuit over false ‘hoax’ claims

It’s unclear what Jones will say in court, but he derided the legal process during a courthouse appearance on Tuesday, going so far as to call the judge handling the case a “tyrant.”

The lawsuit comes a month after a Texas jury determined that Jones and his company, Free Speech Systems, the parent company of fringe media organization Infowars, should award two parents nearly $50 million.

Jones baselessly told his audience following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that the incident was staged. He has since acknowledged that the shooting took place, but only after the charges were filed. He said in a 2019 sworn deposition that a “form of psychosis” caused him to make his false comments.

In the Connecticut case, where Jones is being sued by eight other Sandy Hook families, Judge Barbara Bellis issued a default judgment against the Infowars founder in November 2021 after he failed to comply with court orders. court.

Because the judge has already ruled that Jones is liable, the jury is determining how much damages to award to the plaintiffs. Although the families did not specify a dollar amount, an attorney for the families asked jurors last week to “send a message” to the public with his decision.

Plaintiffs in three Connecticut lawsuits against Jones, including family members of eight students and school employees and an FBI agent who responded to the scene, have all been condensed into the lawsuit that began earlier this this month.

Christopher Mattei, an attorney for the Sandy Hook families, argued during the trial that Jones pushed the Sandy Hook lie because it was profitable.

Norman Pattis, Jones’ lawyer, argued that the Sandy Hook plaintiffs’ claims were “exaggerated”. Pattis also said the Sandy Hook families had “turned partisan” and said the defense would argue the harm was exaggerated “because they want to silence [Jones] for political reasons.”
