Alex Jones default liable Sandy Hook defamation case, law suit guilty

Alex Jones convicted in fourth slander action over Sandy Hook.

Alex Jones, the conspiracy theorist, has now been found guilty by default in all four Sandy Hook defamation cases filed against him.

According to the Independent, a Connecticut judge ruled Monday on the fourth lawsuit brought against the far-right commentator, while the other three cases were resolved in favor of the plaintiffs' families. Jones had refused to comply with court orders requiring him to turn over records relevant to the lawsuits.

The complaints against Jones originated from his 47-year-old broadcaster's statements that the 2012 school killings in Newtown, Conn., which claimed 26 lives — 20 of them children — were a "false flag" operation intended to assist gun control supporters.

The charges against him were brought by the families of ten of those victims, who allege they were harassed by Jones' misguided supporters who believed the massacre was a fake.

Jones had been accused of profiteering from the falsehoods he propagated on his spectacular "Infowars" show, where he has also been under fire for promoting phony COVID-19 remedies.

The Food and Drug Administration issued a clear warning to Jones in April 2020 that he may face prosecution if he continued to sell "SuperSilver Whitening Toothpaste" and "Superblue Fluoride-Free Toothpaste."

Jones, who has featured former President Donald Trump on his show, claimed that the White House has authorized his items.
