Alex Jones was found guilty Monday with damages for parents of children killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Jones claims the massacre was a hoax, and said that Jones' claims that the killing was a hoax.
The judge discovered that, in favor of the parents, the judges were the only one who did not default on Jones in defamation lawsuits because he failed to obtain critical material information from the plaintiffs to prove their claims. The decision has the parents finding a hearing on how much money he should pay, and what fees he will pay.
The parents claimed that Jones and his companies violated court rules by not turning over them. In addition to external company documents showing how, and if, Jones and Infowars profited from talking about the school and other mass shootings.
The family's reasoning is well established to show up in a court brief last July.
Similarly, the lawyers have denied violating the court rules on document disclosure and have asked Bellis to be removed from the case, alleging she isn't impartial.
The Texas judge granted similar rulings to Jones in three defamation lawsuits brought in in the state by Sandy Hook families. Those three suits were ordered for Jones liable for damages after failing to turn over documents and so were hearings on damages.
Jones has since said that the 2012 school shooting in Newtown killed 20 first-graders and 6 educators. Despite his ignorance of the massacre, Jones said that he doesn't believe the massacre was a hoax.
Some of the school shooting victims sued Jones, Infowars and others in court in Texas and in Connecticut in the case of the hoax conspiracy, and said they have been subjected to harassment and death threats from Jones followers.
