Alex Jones - Sandy Hook defamation trial
« on: October 03, 2021, 12:32:24 AM »

A judge in the US state of Texas has found Infowars host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones liable for damages in three defamation lawsuits brought by the parents of two children killed in the Sandy Hook school massacre...

Judge Maya Guerra Gamble entered default judgments against Jones, Infowars and other defendants for what she called their "flagrant bad faith and callous disregard" of court orders to turn over documents to the parents' lawyers.

Thank you, judge.

Does anyone know how to find the judge's decision online? I think it might be interesting reading (in the best way).

Short, but sweet.  And devastating.  It takes a special kind of defendant to draw a default judgment of this type.

If there is a Hell, there better be a special one for Alex Jones in it for this.
Things like accusing NASA of running mines ran by  slave children on Mars is absurd, but they don't hurt anyone any more than the spread of ignorance in general does. But this? This hurts people. This has hurt people. This does hurt people
The idea of having ones child die in such a horrific fashion, only to receive death threats  and more from people indoctrinated into a conspiracy theory claiming you were part of some elaborate scheme to, what, increase gun control laws?
 I can barely imagine how much that must be an absolute mutilation to ones heart, over and over again.
