Alex Jones Hit With $45,000,000.00 In Ruling Damages For Sandy Hook Lies.


A jury ruled Friday that conspiracy theorist Alex Jones should pay $45.2 million to the parents of a child killed in the Sandy Hook school shooting after spending years spreading lies that the shooting didn’t happen.

Jurors deliberated for less than a day before coming to its first decision Thursday that Jones must pay $4.1 million in compensatory damages. On Friday, jurors again deliberated for less than a day when deciding further punitive damages against Jones of more than $40 million.

Along with the judgments, Jones will have to pay an additional $1.5 million in sanctions, Houston attorney Mark Bankston told HuffPost.

Jurors in the Austin, Texas, courtroom were tasked with finding an appropriate amount that Jones and Infowars must pay to a pair of Sandy Hook parents, whose 6-year-old boy, Jesse, died in the 2012 Connecticut shooting that left 20 kids and six adults dead.
This is only the first case to come to trial

Other parents have cases pending

If Alex Jones thinks he has it bad…..

InfoWars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was ordered by a Texas jury to pay $4 million in compensatory damages for defaming Sandy Hook parents Scarlett Lewis and Neil Heslin. The jury in the case was tasked on Thursday with determining compensatory damages for the direct harm the family suffered and awarded a little more than $4 million.

On Friday, the jury will discuss the amount of punitive damages, which is designed to punish Jones to prevent further harm.

How is this bad for conservatives?

Oh my god, FOX will be first! Insanity and Sucker will be at the top of the list.

As far as the election lie, it's been 2 years. Cut the crap already. Nothing has been proven and you dolts still believe the lies spewed by the obese one. It speaks volumes on your intellect.

Why are you moonbats such emo-mewling quims? Jones expressing an opinion didn't add pain or suffering to anyone.

Well they are saying that some of the Sandy Hook parents suffered emotional distress from some of Alex Jones' listeners who threatened their lives.

Really scary that this type of free speech is sued into the millions. He didn't tell these people to harass these parents, these people did that on their own. Same thing with Donald Trump. Trump NEVER told anyone to storm the capitol, yet he's being blamed because some of his fans did.

It's a really scary precedent to set.

People don't want to hear that because he's on the wrong "team" in their eyes.

Not when someone made even more than that by telling the lies.
Just so Im tracking. If someone makes money by saying things that are untrue on TV, Radio, etc people are intitled to take said money through the courts?

If that's the case there's a long list of people Im going to sue and make a shitload of money.

And 'you dolts' still believe Trump is a Russian asset going way back to 2016. LOL

You didn't read the OP, SofaSpud?
Yes, the article speaks in generalities I was hoping for a bit more detail as Ive never listened to Jones.

If all he did was say Sandyhook was staged that’s a big difference from encouraging his listeners to harass the parents. I assume it’s the former
