So Alex Jones has been ordered to pay tens of millions of dollars in damages to victims of his smear campaign against the families of the Sandy Hook massacre shooting.
He's already talking bankruptcy. This legal scheme would allow him to ooze his way out of paying his debt, much like the Blob oozing thru a theater air vent.
Bankruptcy can be a humane option to allow victims of misfortune to escape impossible debt, but all too often but allows the rich to avoid paying off money due to victims of their greed. Employees of corporations, victims of defective products and others can be legally robbed of their due monies by a simple declaration of bankruptcy on the part of a business. When a company declares bankruptcy, banks and taxes get first call at their assets, workers and victims are usually left empty handed.
Maybe it's time to review bankruptcy laws. I have a feeling more far right propaganda peddlers may be looking at it for protection from lawsuits soon as far right violence increases.
Personally I believe when a company declares bankruptcy those with the greatest need should be paid first, lawsuit claimants,workers, etc. Banks ejo chose to loan a business money get last call.
