The parent company of Alex Jones’ Infowars has announced that they will file for bankruptcy as Jones faces a possible $150 million in defamation damages for defaming the Sandy Hook family.
The parent company of far-right conspiracy site InfoWars filed for U.S. bankruptcy protection on Friday as the company and its founder, Alex Jones, face up to $150 million in trial for longstanding falsehoods about the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre dollar loss.
The Sandy Hook family objected to an earlier bankruptcy case, arguing Jones was a “sinister” attempt to protect his assets from liability arising from a defamation lawsuit they won.
Jones tried to delay and avoid testifying. Since the Sandy Hook family won their defamation case against him, he has been dragging them on. Alex Jones faces multiple sentences against Sandy Hook victims and their families for defamation and conspiracy theories.
Alex Jones was more unhinged than usual on his Infowars show, as the pressures of facing a potential financial crisis are supposedly unsettling him.
Jones has lost a defamation lawsuit. Trial in Texas is to determine how much he will pay the families of the two Sandy Hook victims.
If the penalty phase goes as expected, Alex Jones will be financially bankrupt.
