Alex Jones Loses Sandy Hook Defamation Case

Sandy Hook families have won their lawsuit against InfoWars founder Alex Jones after a judge made a default ruling against him.

Jones was sued after he repeatedly claimed that the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax.

Connecticut Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis accused Jones of "willful noncompliance" with the discovery process.

"All the defendants have failed to fully and fairly comply with their discovery obligations," Bellis said.

"While the families are grateful for the Court's ruling, they remain focused on uncovering the truth. As the Court noted, Alex Jones and his companies have deliberately concealed evidence of the relationship between what they publish and how they make money," said Chris Mattei of Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder, which represents the plaintiffs. 

"Mr. Jones was given every opportunity to comply but, when he chose instead to withhold evidence for more than two years, the Court was left with no choice but to rule as it did today. While today's ruling is a legal victory, the battle to shed light on how deeply Mr. Jones has harmed these families continues."
