Day of reckoning looms for Alex Jones in Sandy Hook defamation

The Sandy Hook families who successfully sued Alex Jones for defamation in two states are anticipating trials to determine his penalties now that his quest for bankruptcy has ended. (newstimes, June 8, 2022, by Rob Ryser)

“Initially, writes Dan Solomon in the Texas Monthly, June 8, 2022, “it appeared as if the cases might present some compelling constitutional questions about whether Jones’s speech was protected under the First Amendment. As they progressed, though, it became clear that the civil court trials weren’t going to be instructive about much of anything other than the challenges Jones faced in mounting a defense. He burned through at least eleven lawyers and found himself repeatedly fined and sanctioned for failures to comply with the pretrial discovery process and various court orders.”
