In a matter of mere hours, a jury handed down a judgment on Thursday against InfoWars founder Alex Jones, ordering the conspiracy theorist to pay more than $4.1 million in compensatory damages to the parents of Sandy Hook victims over Jones’ incessant lies and monstrous conspiracies about the massacre. Since the 2012 shooting that claimed the lives of 26 people, including 20 children, Jones has been claiming the shooting was a hoax, that the children who died weren’t real, and that their parents, who’ve continued to suffer from Jones’ attacks, were actors.
Jones’ own legal team claimed that any judgment above $2 million would “sink” his beloved InfoWars media empire, but it’s Jones’ own actions over the course of the trial that may have truly buried the 48-year-old beyond this case. His cellphone records dating back two years are now in the hands of a lawyer representing the parents of a Sandy Hook victim—courtesy of Jones’ own attorney. Those records have been requested by law enforcement agencies and the Jan. 6 committee.
