Sandy Hook Families Win Legal Victory Against Alex Jones, Get Access To Financial, Marketing Info
A judge in Connecticut ruled that six families of victims killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School will have access to any communication conspiracy theorist Alex Jones had about the Newtown massacre, as well as internal marketing and financial documents of Jones’ website InfoWars.
The families — parents of five children who went to the school as well as family members of first-grade teacher Victoria Leigh Soto and Principal Dawn Hochsprung — have sued Jones for an alleged “years-long campaign of abusive and outrageous false statements in which Jones and the other defendants have developed, amplified and perpetuated claims that the Sandy Hook massacre was staged and that the 26 families who lost loved ones that day are paid actors who faked their relative’s deaths,” reports ABC News.
The families also say in legal claims that “Jones’ actions subjected the families and survivors of the Sandy Hook shooting to physical confrontations and harassment, death threats and personal attacks on social media.”
Jones has sought to dismiss the lawsuit.
