Testimony to start in Alex Jones' Sandy Hook damages lawsuit

  Testimony to start in Alex Jones' Sandy Hook damages lawsuit AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A Texas jury will hear the first testimony Tuesday in a civil lawsuit to decide how much Infowars host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones must pay Sandy Hook Elementary School parents for falsely telling his audience that the deadliest classroom shooting in U.S. history was a hoax. At stake for Jones is a potentially major financial blow that could put his constellation of conspiracy peddling businesses into deeper jeopardy. He has already been banned from YouTube, Facebook and Spotify over violating hate-speech policies. The trial involving the parents of two Sandy Hook families is only the start for Jones.

The day before, the founder of the Infowars site had already been ordered to pay more than four million dollars in damages to Scarlett Lewis and Neil Heslin, whose six -year son was died in the massacre at School Sandy Hook in 2012. A young man armed with a semi-automatic rifle had killed 20 children and six adults in this Connecticut establishment, arousing dread in the United States and relaunching the debate on measures to regulate sales firearms.

Alex Jones, a known figure in the far right and a follower of conspiratorial theories, had, against all evidence, affirmed on its site that the massacre was only a staging piloted by opponents of firearms.

Two other to come

The procedure is far from over. Alex Jones' lawyers said they were going to file an appeal to limit damage to $ 1 million, as a Texas law authorizes them. Jones put several of his companies behind the Infowars in bankruptcy, ensuring that he was crumbling under the debts. But for families of families, it is only a sleight of hand. An expert testified that Alex Jones had started to transfer up to $ 11,000 a day when his legal troubles became serious. The accountant figures the conspiratorial value of the conspirator between 135 and 270 million dollars.

These sorrows are only the first in a series of procedures brought by relatives of the victims. Several families had sued him to obtain compensation. He had finally admitted publicly the reality of the killing, while refusing to cooperate with the courts.

of the Judges of Texas and Connecticut had therefore condemned it by default to pay damages to the complainants, while leaving it to jurors to fix their amount. Other financial sanctions should follow soon and may deprive Alex Jones of his platform.
