Summary by JW Williams
Deseret News reported:
“Three lawsuits were filed against Alex Jones and his companies by parents of Sandy Hook victims in 2018, some claiming they have suffered “a severe degree of mental stress and anguish” due to the narratives spread by Jones and his media company alleging the Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax, according to one of the original petitions.
The cases took a surprising turn when the judge granted motions for default judgment, an exceedingly rare ruling, stating Jones’ team “have shown a deliberate, contumacious, and unwarranted disregard for (the) Court’s authority.”
Because Jones did not cooperate with court authorities, the judge ruled that he and his media companies are legally liable for damages caused to the families.”
Alex Jones never received a jury trial on the evidence because the judge ruled that he was in default for failing to provide materials requested in discovery and during the trial.
The court ordered Jones to pay $4.1 million for economic damages and $45.2 million in punitive damages in the latest Sandy Hook case. Legal experts say it is likely he will not pay the full amount because Texas law limits how much defendants have to pay in punitive damages to twice the “economic damages” plus up to $750,000.

David Knight, a former reporter who was terminated from Alex Jones’ InfoWars, analyzed the case and said that Jones “hid” the information that plaintiff’s lawyers sought as part of the trial and he lost his cases after multiple judges ruled he was in default for not participating in the trials. Knight said that as a result, it was not made clear in the trial where the line is drawn between defamation versus the First Amendment and freedom of the press.
Jones’ lawyers accidentally sent phone records to opposing counsel, Mark Bankston, who accused Alex Jones, while he was on the stand testifying, of lying about not having the phone data. Bankston also claimed that Jones’ attorney, Federico Andino Reynal did not try to protect the information.
However, an email shows that the issue was raised by Bankston, who told Jones’ attorneys that the files contained “confidential information.” Bankston wrote: “My assumption is now that you did not intend to send us this? Let me know if I’m correct,” he enquired.
Bankston was told by Jones’ attorney Federico Andino Reynal to “disregard the link.”
But Bankston used documents he acknowledged defendants “did not intend to send.”
Andino Reynal’s request for a mistrial was rejected.
Knight said that when Jones took the stand, he got caught in a perjury trap due to the incompetence of his lawyer, Reynal.
In addition, Knight says that Jones inadvertently told the truth when he said on his show, “I’ve been sitting there, the final witness in the trial, where I’m already found guilty by the judge for not giving stuff over.”
Economist Bernard Pettingill testified that Jones and his company were worth up to $270 million. He said that Jones withdrew $62 million from the firm in 2021, when default judgements were issued in the current case and two other Sandy Hook defamation suits.
Several months ago, an anonymous donor gave Alex Jones $8-million in Bitcoin. Knight asked who is giving Jones the money, and what are they buying?
Knight said that he thinks that Alex Jones made fraudulent bankruptcy claims, which would violate federal law.
im Fetzer, who was also sued by a Sandy Hook parent and lost his case on procedural grounds, said that he offered evidence that the Sandy Hook shooting was staged to Alex Jones’ attorneys many times, yet they refused it. Fetzer also offered his evidence to Remington Arms after the gun manufacturer lost its case and was ordered to pay $73 million.
The Daily Bell commented that Alex Jones is the bellwether: whatever happens to him will subsequently befall a broader swathe of the anti-establishment/ independent press. They warned that default judgments for independent media outlets that do the wrong kind of reporting will become the “new normal.”
While being cross-examined at his defamation trial in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday, Alex Jones was informed that his attorneys accidentally sent two years of text messages from his cellphone to a lawyer for the Sandy Hook parents suing him — and then failed to note that the messages were protected under attorney-client privilege.
Mark Bankston, a lawyer for the plaintiffs, presented a text message about Sandy Hook that Bankston said came from Jones’s cellphone.
“Do you know where I got this?” Bankston asked Jones.
“No,” Jones replied.
Bankston explained: “Twelve days ago, your attorneys messed up and sent me an entire digital copy of your entire cellphone with every text message that you’ve sent for the past two years — and when informed, did not take any steps to identify it as privileged or protected.
Lawyers for the families of children and adults killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School disclosed Monday that child pornography was found in electronic files sent to them by conspiracy theorist Infowars host Alex Jones.
pornography was found in email metadata files Jones’ attorneys turned
over to the families’ lawyers as part of the discovery process of a
defamation lawsuit, which was filed in a Connecticut court last year in
response to discussions on Jones’ show about the school shooting being a
attorney, Norman Pattis, said the child pornography was in emails sent
to Jones that were never opened and he denied Jones did anything wrong.
Pattis said federal authorities are investigating who sent the emails.
angry on his web show based in Austin, Texas, Jones accused one of the
families’ lawyers, Christopher Mattei, of planting the child pornography
in the files in an effort to frame Jones. He also offered a $1 million
reward for information on who sent the emails containing child porn.
a motion filed in Waterbury Superior Court on Monday, lawyers for the
families accused Jones of threatening Mattei by naming him on the show,
showing his photo and wrongly accusing him of planting the child
pornography. The motion will be discussed at a court hearing on Tuesday.
Pattis denied that Jones threatened Mattei.
war! You want it, you got it!” Jones said on the show while talking
about Mattei, a Democrat who ran unsuccessfully for state attorney
general last year. “I’m not into kids like your Democratic party. … So
lawyers for the families, William Bloss, Alinor Sterling and Matthew
Blumethal, said in the motion that they notified the FBI about the
numerous child porn images.
The two sides have been battling over documents and discovery issues in the lawsuit for months.
Alex Jones, the Austin-based provocateur embroiled in several lawsuits filed by parents of victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, said in a deposition released Friday that his conspiracy thinking was a kind of mental disorder.
Jones, who repeatedly
claimed on his internet and radio show InfoWars that the mass shooting
in Newtown, Conn., was a hoax, told lawyers he “almost had like a form
of psychosis back in the past where I basically thought everything was
staged, even though I’m now learning a lot of times things aren’t
Jones blamed his mental state on “the trauma of the media
and the corporations lying so much, then everything begins — you don’t
trust anything anymore, kind of like a child whose parents lie to them
over and over again, well, pretty soon they don’t know what reality is.”
admission came toward the end of the three-hour deposition recorded in a
downtown Austin law office March 14 in one of several lawsuits brought
in Austin, Connecticut and Virginia against Jones by parents of children
killed in the shooting. The suits contend that Jones’ repeated claims
that the shootings were staged showed a reckless disregard for the truth
and for the distress and real harm he was causing the parents, piling
torment on their tragedies.
“So long before these lawsuits I said that in the past I thought
everything was a conspiracy, and I would kind of get into that mass
group think of the communities that were out there saying that,” Jones
said. “And so now I see that it’s more in the middle. All right? So
that’s where I stand.”
But under questioning by Houston lawyer Mark Bankston, Jones continued to display a fundamentally conspiratorial frame of mind.
deposition offers a revealing look at Jones’ state of mind at a moment
of maximum peril him. Jones has been stripped since summer of major
social media platforms for InfoWars because of the content of his posts
and playing defense in multiple courtrooms.

Update: MailChimp, LinkedIn, Pinterest, iTunes and Stitcher have also banned Infowars. Alex Jones is still on Twitter and Instagram. Instagram has banned UK activist Tommy Robinson.
Hours after Alex Jones and Infowars were banned from iTunes and Facebook, The Alex Jones Channel on YouTube which had 2.4 million followers was terminated on Monday “for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines,” along with the Ron Gibson channel which archived Jones’ daily shows.
Earlier Monday we reported that Apple had completely removed five of Infowars’ six podcasts from its iTunes and Podcast apps under their hate speech guidelines, reports BuzzFeed News – including the daily Alex Jones podcast and the show “War Room” – in “one of the largest enforcement actions intended to curb conspiratorial news content by a technology company to date.”
Meanwhile according to Bloomberg, Facebook removed the Alex Jones Channel Page, the Alex Jones Page, the Infowars Page and the Infowars Nightly News Page, which they said “have been unpublished for repeated violations of community standards and accumulating too many strikes.”
Facebook said it reviewed content “glorifying violence, which violates our graphic violence policy, and using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies”
Apple’s decision is the latest in a string of technology companies which have taken action against Jones and Infowars, which he founded 19 years ago in 1999. Last month, YouTube and Facebook each pulled down four videos by Jones and Infowars. Facebook suspended Jones for 30 days, while YouTube hit the news outlet with a “strike.” Meanwhile, Spotify and the podcast app Stitcher followed suit, removing specific episodes of Jones’ show they deemed to contain hateful content.
Apple’s decision comes on the heels of liberal outrage directed at Jones and his network, most recently spearheaded by online activists Sleeping Giants – which has lobbied for tech platforms in general to cut all ties with Jones; condemning Apple last week for their reluctance.
Alex Jones, founder of InfoWars, reading from a script, made an apology directly to James Alefantis, owner of the Comet Ping Pong pizza shop that is the center of the Pizzagate pedophile-allegation controversy based on emails from John Podesta, a long-time Clinton insider. While no hard proof of pedophilia has been presented, many commentators believe there is enough circumstantial evidence to justify an official investigation. Alex Jones was one of those but now says his prior reports were based on an “incorrect narrative” and inaccurate information.
Some people believe that Pizzagate is a ‘limited hangout’ which is a strategy used by government intelligence and propaganda agencies to reveal a limited amount of accurate information but which also contains enough false information to obscure or discredit that part which is true. Others have theorized that Pizzagate could be a set-up to entice critics of the establishment into spreading a false news story so, eventually, they can be discredited by their mistake. This explanation, however, runs counter to the fact that Podesta’s emails were not leaked by an establishment media outlet or a government agency, but were hacked and then published by Wikileaks, a source with a proven anti-establishment track record.
The timing of Alex Jones’ apology last Friday was as significant as the apology itself. An organized protest calling for an investigation of Pizzagate was scheduled the next day at the White House. Jones’ reversal at that critical moment undoubtedly diminished the size and force of the protest.
It is unknown whether Alex Jones was threatened, either financially or physically, other researchers say they have been.
As a side note, David Brock, the former ‘domestic partner’ of James Alefantis, and the Democratic party operative behind Correct The Record and Media Matters, had a heart attack two days before Jones’ apology.
