Alex Jones has, by default, lost two lawsuits that accuse him of being responsible for the abuse the parents of children murdered in the Sandy Hook shooting received. You may recall that he claimed none of the children were killed, that their parents were “crisis actors” trying to profit off the story, and that the whole tragedy was a “false flag” operation to kill the second amendment (which I hope does get killed someday).
Alex Jones, the conspiracy theorist who hosts the right-wing commentary website Infowars, was found legally responsible in two lawsuits for damages caused by his claims surrounding the 2012 Sandy Hook school mass shooting, according to court documents released Thursday.
Judge Maya Guerra Gamble issued default judgments on Monday against Jones and his outlet for not complying with court orders to provide information for the lawsuits brought against him by the parents of two children killed in the shooting.
The rulings, which were first reported by the Huffington Post, effectively mean that Jones lost the cases by default. A jury will convene to ascertain how much he will owe the plaintiffs, the report said.
Oh, boy, I eagerly await news of the penalties. I hope they’re substantial enough to shut down Infowars for good.
ESAD, evil fraud.
